GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - Just in time for Halloween, police in one Eastern Carolina city have seized marijuana-infused candy likely headed to college parties.

Greenville police have charged Owen McKinney, of Anderson, South Carolina, with possession with intent to sell and deliver Schedule VI, and carrying a concealed weapon.

The 21-year-old man was arrested last Thursday by the Greenville Regional Drug Task Force in the area of East First and Harding streets.

Police say they found 200 THC-infused 'Nerd Rope' candies, a handgun, and $1600 in cash.

Officers say they have no reason to suspect the pot-infused candy was intended to be distributed to young children who would be trick or treating.
