An Oxford man was arrested after marijuana was found hidden in his Wendy’s fast-food bag.

Keith Sylvester Rawlings Jr., 30, was driving a Buick at 8:44 p.m. eastbound on State Road 44 when he was pulled over when a check of his license plate revealed the vehicle’s registered owner had a suspended license, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department. The officer verified that Rawlings has been convicted six times for driving while license suspended.

The officer noticed a Wendy’s fast-foot bag on Rawlings’ lap. A clear plastic bag containing marijuana was found in the Wendy’s bag.
