On Saturday afternoon, Nelson Police Department officers were called and asked to assist a woman with her foster son and friends smoking marijuana in his bedroom.
Once officers arrived, they noted one of the group was a 20-year-old known to police who was bound by conditions of release from earlier charges to abstain from alcohol and drugs.
After he was asked to leave the room, a baggie of marijuana was noted sticking out of his pocket. As one police member reached to retrieve it, the male begged to be allowed to leave with it.
He was told that was not going to happen and then tried to get it back from the officer. He was arrested and then tried to get out of that by turning over the second baggie of marijuana he had hidden in his pocket to the officer so he could just leave.
The male was transported to Nelson police cells and will be held for court on Tuesday to answer to charges of breaching his release conditions and possession of a controlled substance.
