A man is behind bars after having a quarter pound of marijuana in his car.

This happened right before 3 pm on Saturday, on the 1900 block of Hidden Way near Holly and Airline. The officer that was in the area noticed that the Hispanic male was parked in the fire lane. The officer approached the man and asked for his license and registration.

When the man opened the console to get his registration, the police officer saw that he had some marijuana inside the console. Officers immediately arrested the man.

It turns out he had about a quarter pound of marijuana and about 1700 dollars in cash. He now faces possession charges.
