A Salisbury police officer cited a woman for multiple traffic infractions and drug possession Tuesday night after the officer noticed her taillight was out.
The officer, K.H. Boehm, saw the light out and attempted to stop a vehicle on Statesville Boulevard at about 11:15 p.m. The car pulled off the road. According to reports, Candise Leach jumped out of the car and “tried to throw marijuana.”
A man who was a passenger in the vehicle complied with the officer’s orders.
Leach, 26, of 2345 Statesville Blvd., was issued a citation for possession of a schedule VI controlled substance, fictitious plate, an inspection violation, failure to burn taillight, having a headlight out and failure to carry a license.
