Because of the keen eyes of Salisbury Police officers Mark Hunter and Wanda Gibson, a stolen handgun was recovered, and marijuana was taken off of the streets of Salisbury.
The officers stopped a car at the intersection of Park Avenue and Shaver Street Wednesday around 11 a.m. for a window tint violation, police reported today.
The officers asked the driver, Arrington Jovan Turner, to get out of the car, and as he did, they noticed a bag of marijuana hanging out of his shirt pocket. The officers then searched the three passengers.
Melvin Maurice Cruse was found with a bag of marijuana in his left vest pocket, and Desjaun Montre Clawson didn’t have anything on him, but the officers reported smelling marijuana.
A search of where Clawson was sitting found a stolen handgun and a bag of marijuana.
Clawson, 19, of Salisbury was charged with felony possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana and felony possession of a stolen handgun, and was given a $5,000 secured bond.
Turner, 24, of Salisbury, was cited for simple possession of marijuana and driving while license revoked.
Cruse, 25, of Salisbury, was cited for simple possession of marijuana.
The third passenger was not charged with anything.
