A Maryland man to wait in the queue to take a driving test at the end of his days behind bars — and without his license after the police said they found a loaded gun and drugs in his car.

Maryland State Police said Reginald D. Wooding, Jr., 22, of Baltimore, was waiting in line in his mother’s car to get his driver’s licence on Monday when the examiner smelled the odor of marijuana from the vehicle.

The employee alerted a state trooper working an overtime assignment at the MDOT motor vehicle Administration location in Glen Burnie. The trooper reportedly confirmed the smell and investigated.

A pound of marijuana, a scale, more than $15,000 in suspected drug-related cash, and a loaded gun found in Wooding vehicle, authorities said.

Before he could even take his driving test, Wooding was arrested. He has previously been charged with several drug-related and weapon-related crimes, including allegedly obscures the ID number on a pistol and the drugs, with the intent to distribute.

Wooding was released on a $7,500 unsecured bond.
