A California man faces felony drug charges after he was caught with five pounds of marijuana which he admitted he planned to sell.
The suspect, Robert Haywood III, 42, has been bound to the grand jury on the charge of possession of marijuana for resale. He is free on bond and has been granted permission to return to California while he waits for his case to go before the grand jury. If he is indicted, he will be arraigned without being here, meaning he will likely not return until either his plea or trial date.
Haywood was busted with his large haul of marijuana when McMinnville police detective Tony Jenkins showed up at his door on Cherokee Drive with a search warrant. While his place of residence is Lancaster, Calif., he was living at a residence on Cherokee Drive at the time of the raid.
“I found 11 bags of marijuana, weighing in excess of five pounds,” Jenkins said in his warrant against Haywood.
The marijuana was found in an open box in a rear bedroom. He did not deny ownership.
“He admitted the marijuana was his and that he intended to sell it,” Jenkins said.
