JOLIET, Ill., Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Authorities in Illinois said a 19-year-old visitor to a juvenile detention center was arrested when he pulled pot out of his pockets during security screening.

Will County sheriff's deputies said Devante Saxton, 19, emptied his pockets at the security checkpoint at the River Valley Juvenile Detention Center around 11:30 a.m. last Thursday and "removed five bags of cannabis from his jacket and placed them in a bin to be scanned by the metal detector," The (Joliet) Herald-News reported Thursday.

A deputy was called to the center and arrested Saxton on a marijuana possession charge. He was released after posting $100 bond.
