LENOIR, N.C. (AP) -- A man applying for a gun permit at the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office was instead charged with marijuana possession after authorities smelled it on his body.
The canine team was called last week after officials in the office smelled marijuana on Dennis Lee Vines Junior.
A German shepherd canine officer found two small bags of marijuana, two marijuana cigarettes and two packs of rolling papers in the 25-year-old man's pickup truck in the sheriff's office parking lot.
Vines was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was released on an 850-dollar bond.
