‚ÄčA 21-year-old southeast Missouri man on Sunday was arrested twice in the same day for possessing marijuana.

The man was first arrested five minutes after midnight Sunday at the Community Center in Caruthersville, Mo., reports The Kansas City Star. Police said they found “several baggies” of cannabis along with several hundred dollars after they conducted a pat-down for weapons.
He was charged with possession of a controlled substance and was released pending the filing of formal charges.

At 11:10 p.m., the same man was stopped for improper vehicle registration and a drug-sniffing dog searched his vehicle. Police say the search once again turned up “several baggies” of cannabis.
The suspect’s name has not been released pending the filing of formal charges by the Pemiscot County prosecutor’s office, reports the Southeast Missourian.
