Authorities say a traffic stop of a man improperly crossing the street led to the discovery of drugs and a cache of illegally recorded DVDs.

Police say Arquez Jackson of Atlanta disregarded an official traffic-control device on April 10 and walked out into the street before it was safe to do so. The crosswalk was located near the intersection of South Cobb Drive and Appleton Drive next to Cumberland Lodge.

When Jackson was stopped by officials, they say he reported false identification information.

Once the information was discovered as false, Jackson attempted to flee authorities.

While running away, police say the accused dropped the bag he was carrying behind a laundromat, where they say they found nearly 50 grams of suspected loose marijuana inside.

Consequently, there was a search following Jackson’s arrest, where police say they uncovered 112 illegally recorded DVDs. They said they assumed Jackson had the intention of selling or distributing the unlicensed movies.

Jackson has been in custody at the Cobb jail since his arrest.
