Martin Man Arrested on Drug Charges

April 16th, 2013 - By Steve James

An investigation by the Martin Police into an incident concerning a vehicle striking a bike rider, has lead to the arrest of man on drug possession charges.

According to reports, officers were dispatched to the Lester Lane area after receiving a call about a child getting bumped by a car while riding a bike.

The child was ok after the incident, and officers spoke to the driver, 23 year old Marcus Easley of Martin. He said the sun was in his eyes and he couldn’t see. While speaking to Easley, officers reportedly could smell alcohol and marijuana in the car.

An initial search was done, but no drugs were found. They then searched with a drug dog and officers found approximately 67 grams of marijuana and a set of digital scales. After finding those drugs, Easley reportedly pulled another small bag of marijuana out of his pants.

He’s been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.
