The Times-News of Burlington reports ( a Graham man is accused of selling an undercover police officer a bag that he said contained an ounce of marijuana. The bag actually contained a half-eaten chicken sandwich.  A warrant filed in the Alamance County Magistrate’s Office says 23-year-old Dustin Rockwell Davis is charged with sell and delivery of a counterfeit controlled substance and sell and delivery of marijuana. Both are felonies.  Davis was jailed under a $5,000 bond. His attorney couldn’t be identified Tuesday.  Police said Davis sold the half-eaten chicken sandwich to the Burlington undercover officer on Jan. 30.  [–][–][–]  Information from: Times-News,
