SALISBURY — A Salisbury man couldn’t fool authorities after he tried to hide marijuana in his underwear. He was issued a citation for drug possession.
Devaughn Alonzo David Hepburn, 29, of 810 S. Main St., Apt. B-204, was cited early this morning by Salisbury Police with possession of marijuana.
The incident occurred shortly before midnight when an officer recognized a man during a traffic stop. The officer smelled marijuana in the car and, upon searching, found 2.9 grams of marijuana as well as 24 grams of marijuana the man had hidden in his underwear.
