A whiff of marijuana at a CVS in Greenwich led to the arrest of a man after police found Cannabis-laced fruit snacks in his vehicle.

Police said they were at the store on West Putnam Avenue for another investigation when they noticed the smell coming off of William Charles Walters of New York.

The manager of the CVS also said he smelled the odor coming from Walters.

Officers found the suspect in a red Jeep with New Jersey plates in the parking lot.

Again, they said they smelled marijuana.

Walters admitted that he had an ounce of the drug in his center console.

However, police said they found a large bag containing fruit snacks on the front passenger seat.

According to police, the fruit snacks contained THC, the mind-altering ingredient found in the Cannabis plant.

The snacks were found in six separate bags, which officers said were equal amounts. That lead them to believe that they were packaged for sale.

Police said in all, they confiscated more than an ounce of marijuana and more than 1 kilogram of THC-laced fruit snacks.

Walters was charged with possession of under 4 ounces of marijuana, possession of over 4 ounces of marijuana and possession of over 1 kilogram of marijuana with intent to sell.

He was issued a bond of $300, which he posted.

Walters is scheduled to face a judge on Dec. 16 in Stamford.
