Worthington Division of Police officers charged a 35-year-old Columbus man after discovering that he was selling ice cream out of an unlicensed vehicle while in possession of marijuana.
An officer noticed the man selling ice cream in the parking lot of a business on the 900 block of High Street on the afternoon of July 3, according to reports, and found a "discrepancy" in the registration information of the vehicle.
When officers approached the vehicle, they reported smelling marijuana and discovered the man did not have a vendor's permit to sell ice cream. Eventually, police searched the vehicle and found a marijuana cigarette and a baggie containing 11 grams of suspected marijuana.
The man was charged with possession of marijuana and released.
