Rochester teen arrested for possession of narcotics
ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -
A Rochester teen is arrested on drug charges after police find bags of marijuana and pills in his pants.
An officer pulled over 18-year-old DiAngelo Johnson around 1:15 Saturday morning on the 300 block of 11th Avenue Southeast for what he believed was a strobe light coming from the dash. The light was coming from Johnson's phone.
The officer smelled marijuana and noticed a bulge in Johnson's pants near the hip.
He discovered a small bag that had about an ounce of marijuana inside, plus 60 pills of Clonazepam, a drug to treat seizures.
When Johnson arrived at jail, police said several clumps of marijuana fell out of his pants, after he tried to manipulate a second bag "deeper in his pants."
He faces a first degree narcotics sales charge among other charges.
