Police said they found marijuana on a Spartanburg teenager after he tried to hide it in his underwear Saturday night.
Spartanburg Public Safety officers said they were patrolling along Howard Street a little before midnight when they saw a man acting suspicious and when they approached him, they said he pulled up his pants and took off running.
Police said the man, identified as 18-year-old Paul Glover, ran about 30 yards before he was caught and as they were searching him, they said he had a baggy with a green, leafy substance in his pockets and more hidden in his groin area along with a scale.
Glover also had an active arrest warrant by the city, police said. They said they seized 25 grams of marijuana.
Glover was charged with simple possession of marijuana and two counts of trespassing after notice. He was also served the warrants for strongarm robbery and assault and battery by a mob second-degree from an unrelated incident.
According to a May 14 police report, Glover was one of the suspects listed in the robbery of a Spartanburg man.
Police said they were called to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center after the victim's father said his son was beaten up.
The victim told police that he was hit from behind, blacked out and when he woke up, his wallet with $60 inside, license and his cell phone were missing, along with his shoes.
