A snap decision

An area man’s Snapchat usage earned him hot water after posting videos with marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia, according to an OVPD report. 

The suspect’s comedy of errors included posting Snapchat and Instagram stories of him hold baggies of marijuana, rolled joints and a gun. 

His videos had a variety of incriminating captions, including “HMU for rolled blunts or bud.”

The responding officer found two cigarette rolls and a baggie of fresh marijuana inside the man’s backpack, a vapor cigarette in his front right pocket and a blue pill with the marking ‘443’ on it in a black bag, according to the report. 

The man said the pill was Melatonin that he was given by his mother, though she later told the officer that she did not give him any pills, nor did she know what the pill was, the report said. 

The suspect’s forgettable exploits led to a citation for Possession of marijuana and possession of instrument to ingest tobacco or vapor product and his release to his father.
