A Buffalo man is in trouble with the law after he was found with 47 packs of untaxed cigarettes, six foil packs of a prescription drug meant to wean people off their addiction to opioids and 27 bags of marijuana, according to police.
Police say Demetrius Calhoun was in the Main Place Tower, 350 Main St., at 10:45 a.m. Thursday when an officer saw him with the untaxed cigarettes. A summary of the arrest report doesn't indicate what he was doing with them.
After Calhoun's arrest, another law-enforcement agent found the Suboxone, which typically comes in the form of a thin film strip, in his left front pants pocket, police reported. Officers found the marijuana inside a purse around Calhoun's neck.
He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of marijuana, a violation of state Public Health Law and a violation of New York tax law.
