A 29-year-old Lebanon man was arrested on drug charges over the weekend after a police officer saw him with a bag of marijuana stuck to his forehead in a city convenience store.
The officer entered the Turkey Hill Minit Market at 716 E. Lehman St. at 3:25 a.m. Saturday, police said Monday. While inside, he saw a man walking away from the restrooms. The man held a ball cap in his hand and was looking in the interior of the hat, near its sweatband.
When the man approached the officer, he looked up, and the officer noticed a small plastic bag stuck to the man's forehead that appeared to contain marijuana, police said.
The officer retrieved the bag from the man's forehead and asked, "Is this what you're looking for?" the police news release states.
The man, identified as Cesar Lopez, was charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
Police said it is not uncommon for people possessing illegal narcotics and paraphernalia to store the items inside the sweatband of a cap.
