A man who told police that he was disabled when they asked him his occupation has been arrested and charged with the sale of marijuana. The incident unfolded at a home on East Castle Street. 50-Year old Barry Wade Anderson allegedly didn’t have a problem selling drugs earlier this month because when he was questioned by police at his home he told officers he had just sold $20 worth of marijuana, all while listing his work status as unemployed on an arrest report.
Inside the home where Anderson was arrested were three small children, all under the age of 5. The Department of Children Services were notified when five bags of marijuana were located and marijuana seeds were found in an ashtray next to one of the children who was found to be asleep on a mattress.
Anderson will face the charge for the sale of a schedule six drug and possession of drug paraphernalia in court on November 21, 2013.
