Dark windows lead to drug charges
SALISBURY — A Salisbury man pulled over for having a dark tint on the windows of his car ended up in jail for two felony drug charges, Salisbury Police reported this morning.
Police said the driver, Dwon Nicholas Still, 21, of 505 E. Division Ave., East Spencer, was stopped by the Police Interdiction Team at the intersection of North Long Street and Laurel Street at 6:20 p.m. Tuesday for a tint violation. Police were going to cite Still, but when he refused to allow officers to search the car, K9 Rico hit on the car and found marijuana, the report said.
In the trunk of the car police found 23.9 grams of marijuana in 15 different plastic bags, wrapped in paper towels and hidden in the pocket of a jacket. Also found in the car was a set of digital scales and cash, police said.
Still was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling or vehicle for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was given a $5,000 secured bond and a Thursday morning court date.
