Paperboy 'delivered weed on his rounds'

Updated: 

A 58-year-old paperboy, if we can call him that, has been charged with possession of marijuana after police were given anonymous tips that a man was selling drugs on his morning rounds.

The Buffalo News reports that Douglas Lukehart was delivering papers in the upstate New York town of Holland when he was pulled over for violating a traffic law. The sheriff soon believed he was speaking to the person they'd received anonymous tips about.

Another deputy and a dog unit searched Lukehart's vehicle - and discovered a bag of weed in a stack of newspapers, the paper reports.

Lukehart was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, and multiple traffic violations, but has been released pending a court date.
