After traffic stop, man charged with having high-quality marijuana

Authorities seized just more than half a pound of high-quality marijuana and cash from a Rowan County man following a traffic stop at Interstate 85 and East Innes Street.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Cody Lane Morris, 24, with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, maintaining a vehicle to keep/sell controlled substances, possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also issued a citation for not burning his headlights. Morris was stopped because a deputy noticed his headlights were off and smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Morris admitted to having marijuana in the vehicle, a report said. The deputy confiscated 251 grams or about .55 pounds of the marijuana and $1,561 in cash. The marijuana was in individual bags, each weighing an ounce.
A month ago, authorities charged Morris with breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, but he was interrupted before taking anything. The woman heard someone messing with the door and saw him through a mirror in the living room, according to reports, and he bolted from the house when he saw her.
He has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $5,000 secured bond.
