Domestic disturbance call results in arrest of resident on drug charges
LAWRENCEVILLE - Police responded to a domestic disturbance Friday on Davis Mill Court and arrested one of the residents after discovering a bag of marijuana in plain sight.
After entering the house, officers noticed a strong odor of burnt marijuana, according to police reports. A resident and his friend, 24-year-old Torriano Morton of Lithonia, admitted they smoked marijuana the previous night, but they told police it was all gone. They offered to let officers search the premises.
An officer allegedly found a plastic bag containing several smaller bags of marijuana and several suspected ecstasy pills lying on top of a bed in a bedroom. Morton reportedly spoke up and said, "It's mine. I bought it last night, and I got a good deal on it."
Morton said he only paid $400 for $1,000 worth of weed. He was charged with possession of marijuana and ecstasy with intent to distribute and giving a false name to police.
