Maryland State Police say a Baltimore man was arrested after he tried to take a state driver’s license test in a car containing marijuana, a loaded gun, a scale and $15,000.
Reginald D. Wooding Jr., 22, was in his mother's car on Monday, when a driver’s license examiner smelled the odor of marijuana coming from Wooding's vehicle, police said. At the time Wooding was in the car and waiting to take a driving test.
The employee found a state trooper who was working at the Motor Vehicle Administration location in Glen Burnie, Md., and the trooper began to investigate.
Police say they found one pound of marijuana, a scale, more than $15,000 and a loaded handgun in the car Wooding had hoped to use to complete the driving test. Police say the money is likely related to drugs.
Wooding was charged with a number of drug- and firearm-related offenses and was released on a $7,500 unsecured bond.
Court records indicate Wooding has been previously charged with burglary, assault and drug-related offenses, WBAL-TV reports.
Wooding was arrested before he was able to take his driving test, police say.
