Forgetting drugs leads to memorable possession charge
Placeholder Image

A young man with a bad memory has been indicted on drug possession charges.
The suspect, Tristian Skyler Sons, 19, stands indicted on the charge of possession of marijuana and will be arraigned later this month before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley.
The teen was hit with the charges after Sheriff’s Sgt. Tony Taylor took him into custody on an outstanding charge for which he was to serve five days in jail. The deputy conducted a search and found a bag of green leafy substance in his pocket.
“I asked him what it was and he said it was marijuana,” Taylor called of the discovery, noting the young man admitted it had slipped his mind when he was surrendering to the lawman he had marijuana on his person.
“He stated he forgot it was in his pocket,” Taylor noted of the youth’s confession concerning the illegal substance.
