    One man should have rethought his plan after officers said he tried to hide drugs inside the stall of a bathroom inside a police station.

    According to the arrest affidavit, the bizarre story started with a traffic stop on August 6. Officers pulled over Jeffery Newberry, 27, for not wearing a seatbelt, detectives said.

    When officers approached the car, Newberry said he had his gun carry permit and a pistol was inside the car.

    Police said they took the gun out and after searching a database, they found out it was stolen.

    Newberry was taken to the police station and said he bought the gun off the street for $200. They also could smell a strong marijuana odor coming off of him.

    The suspect asked to go to the bathroom. After he left the bathroom, officers started to smell marijuana coming from the only stall. Police then found a bag of marijuana inside the toilet seat cover dispenser, the arrest affidavit said.

    Police asked him about the weed and he admitted to leaving it in the bathroom.

    Newberry was arrested and charged with Possessing a Firearm during the Commission of a Dangerous Felony, Possession of Controlled Substance with Intent to Manufacture, and Theft of Property.

    Ok what was the dangerous felony? Stolen gun? Or not wearing seat belt? ;)
    What is the "intent to manufacture?"
    Why didn't he flush it? Did he hope to recover it later?

    If he wouldn’t have needed a toilet cover it never would have happened.

    Stupid gun. If it haven’t been stolen, he never would have been arrested.

    Maybe his seatbelt was inoperative.

    It’s because he’s Black isn’t it.

    sumdood must have put that in there.

    But what was dangerous felony? Origional stop was failure to wear seat belt. (Not knowing law in that state) is notifying Officer of carry permit, gun required? But he did.
    Buying a stolen gun is a concern when buying face to face, or At a gun show. Even from FFL.

    Back in 70s I bought a number of guns from Police Officers. Decades later I realized they COULD have been taken off criminals that gave Intel, were released without arrest, gun taken. I highly doubt it. But it's remotely possible.

    Yep he had illegal drugs, was stupid that given chance to flush he hid them. Better yet just dont do drugs... Sad he had carry permit.
