Curtis Jackson, 25, 1400 block Judy Lane, was charged with marijuana possession and felony tampering with evidence.
A Sandusky police officer stopped Jackson at Hancock Street and Huron Avenue shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday for driving under suspension.
The officer noticed a coffee cup with its lid partially removed tucked into Jackson’s cupholder, and coffee was dripping down the side of the seat and console, according to a Sandusky police report.
When Jackson exited the car so police could search it, he tried to take the cup with him — but officers told him to leave it, the report said.
An officer then fished a bag of marijuana out of the hot beverage, cuffed Jackson and took him to the Erie County jail.
