Police: Dark window tint leads police to charge Kannapolis man with marijuana, ecstasy

Police say the window tint on a Buick led them to charge a Kannapolis man with marijuana and ecstasy possession Wednesday night.

Salisbury Police charged Antony Daneill Porter, 32, of the 5900 block of Yale Avenue, with felony possession of controlled substance schedule I, felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell, deliver a controlled substance schedule VI, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

The incident occurred just before 7:30 p.m. in the 400 block of North Long and East Cemetery street. The officer stopped the vehicle because the tint was too dark.  When the driver, later identified as Porter, rolled the window down the officer could smell marijuana.

Porter was asked to step out of the vehicle. A report said Porter told the officer he had marijuana in a blue bag in the vehicle. Police searched the bag and found 30.2 grams of marijuana, one gram of Molly or ecstasy, digital scales and $184.

Porter was also issued a warning citation for window tint.
