A Salisbury man was arrested Thursday afternoon when a traffic stop revealed drugs and a concealed weapon.
According to a Salisbury Police report, Tedrick Rashad Evans, 30, was arrested about 6 p.m. when police found marijuana and a kitchen knife in the man’s possession.
The report said Evans seemed nervous after being stopped by police and continued fumbling with his waistband.
Authorities reported that because Evans was not wearing a belt, his pants fell to the ground as they searched him, revealing a bag of marijuana in his underwear. Police also found a kitchen knife in his back pocket.
The report said Evans then attempted to resist arrest and was shocked by police.
Evans, 603 E. Lafayette St., was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest. He was given a $5,000 bond.
