Unwise wise man had frankincense, myrrh and marijuana

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Police in South Carolina said a man with the frankincense and myrrh of a wise man was also unwisely carrying marijuana in his car.
Myrtle Beach police said Alain Cassagnol, 19, was clocked driving his Mercedes-Benz 103 mph in a 45 mph zone around 12:30 a.m. Monday in Myrtle Beach, the Smoking Gun website reported Thursday.

Cassagnol was ordered out of his car and officers detected a "strong odor of marijuana emitting from his person."

Officers said Cassagnol acknowledged he was carrying marijuana in his pants, and they discovered a baggie containing about .2 ounces of cannabis near his groin.

Police said they also found a frankincense and myrrh incense spray in the car known by the brand name, "Blunt Block." It is marketed as a means to mask the odor of marijuana smoke.

Cassagnol was booked into the Horry County jail with bond set at $649.
