Man found with drugs & gun in car while applying for driving test

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - He was trying to get his driver’s license. Instead, he left with a laundry list of charges after police found marijuana in his car.

The Motor Vehicle Association told FOX45 they pride themselves in “training employees to appropriately handle situations that appear out of the ordinary.”

State Police say it was quick work by an MVA employee who helped them get 22-year-old Reginald Wooding, Jr, in handcuffs Monday.

Police say Wooding was arrested at the Glen Burnie MVA after the license examiner smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from his car. She alerted the State Trooper stationed at the office.

According to police, the trooper found a pound of marijuana inside the car.

Greg Shipley, with the Maryland State Police, says they also seized “about $15,000 in drug related cash and a handgun, a loaded handgun with a 30-round magazine, from this vehicle.”

Police say Wooding claimed the car belonged to his mother. She is not facing any charges.

Wooding has previously faced charges of marijuana possession, disorderly conduct and interference with police.

He is out of jail on a $7,500 bond.
