— A routine traffic stop on Wednesday afternoon led officers to arrest a Rock Hill man who they said had about 15 grams of marijuana hidden in his underwear.

Authorities say Jonathan Lynn Hardin, 45, of Albert Street in Rock Hill was pulled over after failing to use a turn signal while pulling into a gas station, according to a police report.

When an officer made contact with Hardin, the report states he appeared “very nervous” and was talking “very fast.”

He later admitted to police that he was driving without insurance, according to the report.

Hardin also told police he had “a little bit of marijuana,” the report states, and the officer found 15.6 grams of the illegal drug on him.

Rock Hill police arrested Hardin and, according to the report, charged him with possession of marijuana- third offense and operating an uninsured vehicle.
