By Shavonne Potts


SALISBURY — An eastern North Carolina man was cited for marijuana possession after spotted by a police officer not stopping at a red light.

Jaylen Pyatt, 19 of Bolton, was cited for both simple possession of marijuana and failure to stop for a red light.

An officer saw a black BMW at the intersection of East Innes and Faith Road that did not stop. The officer pulled the car over and approached the driver. The officer noted an odor of marijuana coming from the car, said police detective Russ DeSantis.

Pyatt allegedly admitted there was marijuana in the car. The officer found a plastic bag underneath the driver’s seat with marijuana and a bag of hemp under the brand name, Cookie.

Police also seized two spent gun shell casings.
