A man found sleeping outside the Gold Lounge by officers admitted to having marijuana, Columbus police said.
Officers saw the suspect, identified in reports as 21-year-old Matthew London, sleeping outside the 3613 Victory Drive club in a 2006 red Ford Focus with the motor running around 3:15 a.m. Saturday. They spoke with the suspect, who told them that he’d been drinking, police said.
He also told officers that he had marijuana in his car, reports state.
Officers found suspected marijuana by the front doors and in a container under the passenger seat. They also saw several small bags and a 375-milliliter bottle of New Amsterdam gin in the glove compartment.
London faces charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and an open container violation. He was being held Sunday on $5,200 in bonds.
