Fireworks lead to drug charges

SALISBURY — Police said they found marijuana in a 21-year-old’s possession after authorities confronted a group of men who were walking down West Innes Street cursing and throwing fireworks Thursday morning.
A Salisbury Police report said officers stopped near the intersection of West Innes and Willow streets about 12:30 a.m. when they saw a group yelling.
Police approached the men, and saw one reach to his waistband.
The man, later identified as Dadrian Cowan, refused to put his hands up when officers got closer.
Cowan fled across West Innes Street toward Grove Street when additional officers cornered him and forced the 21-year-old to the sidewalk.
Police said they found 19 grams of marijuana in 24 individually wrapped bags.
Cowan, of Standish Street, was charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana.
No others were charged in the incident.
He was in jail Thursday morning under a $10,000 bond.
