By Josh Bergeron 


A 17-year-old was arrested Thursday on gun and drug charges, according to the Salisbury Police Department.

Salisbury resident Montrell Charles Robinson, 17, was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance and a probation violation, according to arrest reports. Because he is under the age of 18, police spokeswoman Shelia Lingle said, Robinson was also charged with possession of a firearm.

Lingle said police seized 4 grams of marijuana, four dosage units of methamphetamines and a gun.

He was booked into jail under a $10,000 secured bond.
