Authorities charged a Salisbury man with marijuana possession after he was spotted behind the Medicine Shoppe late Thursday night.

Salisbury Police charged Kevin Travis Barbour, 38, of the 500 block of South Clay Street, with misdemeanor resist, delay, obstruct an officer and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

A member of the Police Interdiction Team saw Barbour behind the pharmacy and almost ran over the man when he walked out in front of the police patrol car.

The officer asked Barbour what he was doing and he said that he was waiting on a ride.

A report said the officer could smell marijuana coming from Barbour as he spoke. The officer asked Barbour if he had any substances on him. Barbour reached into his pants pocket and removed a plastic bag of marijuana.

When the officer informed Barbour he was under arrest, the man resisted and had to be taken to the ground, Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said.

Police seized 28.5 grams of marijuana inside the plastic bag.

He was issued a $1,500 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.

Barbour has been convicted of driving while license revoked, driving while impaired twice in 2004  and misdemeanor marijuana possession twice in 2012.
