A Decatur man is facing drug distribution charges after police said they caught him selling marijuana to someone.

Damion M. Jones, 20, was spotted by a Decatur Police Deparment investigator making a drug deal in the 1200 block of West Moulton Street SW on Nov. 30, police said.

Police stopped the vehicle of the person who they said received the drugs, and they said they found marijuana in the vehicle.

Jones was pulled over at 14th Avenue and Douthit Street, but not before police said they saw someone in the vehicle throw something into a wooded area. A police K-9 unit searched the area and found marijuana and digital scales, police said.

Jones was arrested and is being held without bond due to what police said was an extensive criminal history.
