A Boston man was arrested in Finksburg Monday after a traffic stop and subsequent search revealed he was transporting drugs, police said.
Davante John Jacobs, 23, of Boston, has been charged with removing the label off a prescription, possession of a controlled dangerous substance other than marijuana, possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance and possession of more than 10 grams of marijuana, according to electronic court records.
The court set bail at $7,500, which was posted Tuesday, electronic court records show.
Police say Jacobs was driving south on Md. 91 near Old Gamber Road at about 11 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, and that the right headlight of the vehicle was not operational, according to a statement of probable cause.
A Carroll County Sheriff’s Office deputy made a traffic stop and noticed the smell of marijuana, deputies wrote.
After asking Jacobs to exit the vehicle, deputies found a codeine cough syrup prescription bottle with the label scratched off while searching him, the statement shows.
The statement details that deputies found thousands of dollars, a plastic cylinder with marijuana and a grinder on Jacobs’ person.
Upon being asked if he had anything else in the vehicle, Jacobs said, “I’m not going to lie I’m riding dirty. That’s all I’m going to say,” deputies wrote. He then told deputies that he had “2 or 3 pounds of marijuana in the car,” the statement shows.
