Man nabbed for pot possession near daycare

By Associated Press 7:35 AM March 17, 2014

Brown is also suspected of taking three 1,000-round cases from a retailer.

KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) – A 21-year-old man suspected of stealing $1,500 worth of rifle ammunition was arrested for possessing nearly an ounce of marijuana near a daycare center.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports that 21-year-old Herman Joseph Brown III was arraigned Wednesday in Ketchikan District Court on one count of fourth-degree controlled-substance misconduct.

Possession of less than an ounce of marijuana outside of a home is normally a misdemeanor, but because Brown was allegedly found with the drug within 500 feet of a child care center, he was charged with a felony.

Brown is also suspected of taking three 1,000-round cases from a retailer.
