Fall River Man Caught With Carload of ‘Candy’
FALL RIVER — One man's sweet tooth has landed him in some hot water after state police allegedly caught him with a carload of cannabis-infused candy.
State police said in a release yesterday that 38-year-old Fall River man Damien Davis was pulled over by a trooper on South Main Street at around 2:30 p.m. on Friday.
Trooper Joseph Kubicek had conducted a Registry of Motor Vehicles query on the car driving ahead of him, finding that it was registered to Davis, who had a warrant out for his arrest.
After the trooper pulled Davis over and arrested him on the warrant, he was allegedly found to have two pill bottles containing Xanax and Adderall as well as cut straws with powdery residue, state police said.
A search of the car turned up a backpack that allegedly contained large plastic bags of marijuana along with multiple edible THC candy bags, THC vape cartridges, and a large amount of cash, according to the release.
The cannabis-infused candy is packaged and labeled in a very similar way to popular brands of regular candy like Skittles and Trolli, and have been the subject of multiple recent lawsuits in states where they are sold.
Davis was taken to the Ash Street Jail and is charged on the outstanding warrant and for possessing a class D substance with intent to distribute.
He is also charged with one count each of possessing class E, B, C and D substances.
