ROCK HILL A search for whipped cream stolen from a Rock Hill McDonalds led police to arresting a Pennsylvania man with marijuana in his car and jacket early Wednesday.
Around 2:40 a.m., police were called to the McDonalds at 115 South Cherry Road, across from Winthrop University, when the restaurants manager said a man wearing a white jacket with strips and burgundy pants took whipped cream without paying for it, according to a Rock Hill police report.
The manager told police she saw the man walk towards the Firewater 110 nightclub, formerly The Money, and leave in a white van with a spare tire at the rear, the report states. Police circulated the area and found a 1995 white GMC van with 38-year-old Jason David Clark inside.
Clark, who hails from Ambler, Penn., didnt match the managers description of the suspect, the report states, but officers smelled marijuana coming from the car. He denied having pot until officers prepared to pat him down.
He pulled out a blue plastic container with marijuana inside. He also pulled out a pipe from his jacket. Officers searched his car and found more marijuana inside the ashtray and a glass jar.
Clark was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana. The report doesnt say if police found the stolen whipped cream.
