Insurance violation leads to drug charge

A Woodleaf man was cited with simple possession of marijuana after a Salisbury Police officer patroling at the intersection of Grim and West Horah streets stopped his vehicle for an insurance violation.
Derek Wayne Horton, 22, of the 3400 block of Needmore Road, was cited and released. The incident occurred Thursday at 7:16 p.m. The officer stopped the vehicle in front of McLaughlin’s Grocery.
The system showed the car was to be stopped and the license plate was to be seized. The officer noted in a report the driver seemed to be moving around a lot and appeared nervous. When the officer approached the car, the driver’s hand was shaking, a report said.
The officer asked if he had illegal substances and he admitted he had some marijuana. Horton pulled the marijuana from the leg of his boxers. The officer seized 14.5 grams or about half an ounce of marijuana.
Horton is expected in a Davie County courtroom in July on pending charges of reckless driving to endanger and no operator’s license.
