SALISBURY, Md. - A Laurel, Delaware man has been arrested on drug and weapons charges, after a traffic stop in Salisbury on Tuesday.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says a Deputy noticed that a driver on Naylor Mill Road, at Jersey Road, wasn't wearing a seat belt. During the stop, the driver, 26-year-old Michael Parsons, reportedly told the Deputy that there were drugs in the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle apparently turned up two jars and two baggies of marijuana, along with a scale, a grinder, and a smoking device. Two shotguns, and ammunition was also reportedly recovered from the vehicle.

Parsons was arrested, and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime. He is being held at the Detention Center on $250,000 bond.
