LEBANON, Pa. – Police in central Pennsylvania say they've nabbed a real pot head.
Twenty-nine-year-old Cesar Lopez is charged with drug possession after police say an officer saw him with a bag of marijuana stuck to his forehead.
Investigators say an officer saw Lopez looking at the inside of his baseball cap in a convenience store early Saturday morning in Lebanon, about 75 miles northwest of Philadelphia. When Lopez looked up, the officer spotted a small plastic bag appearing to contain marijuana stuck to his forehead.
Police say the officer peeled the bag off Lopez's forehead and placed him under arrest.
Authorities say the sweatband of a baseball cap is a frequent hiding place for drugs.
