SALISBURY — Loud music led police to marijuana and felony charges for a Salisbury man Tuesday evening.
According to a Salisbury Police report, Deshawn Jamal Outlaw, 22, was stopped by Salisbury Police Officer W.S. Gibson for loud music at the intersection of Monroe and Institute streets at about 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
The report said Gibson, a Police Interdiction Team member, prepared to write a warning for the excessive noise when her K-9 unit alerted near the blue 1987 Mercury’s passenger-side window.
After searching the vehicle, Gibson found about a third of an ounce of marijuana in two bags. One bag was found in a hair gel bottle, the other in the vehicle’s ashtray.
Outlaw, 921 Lincolnton Road, was charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana.
He was released after posting $1,500 bond.
