A 20-year-old Salina man was arrested on suspicion of multiple drug-related counts after a witness reported seeing an alleged drug transaction in the Central Mall parking lot.

Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said this morning that police were called to the Central Mall, 2259 South Ninth Street at approximately 3:15 p.m. Thursday for the report of what a witness believed was a drug transaction in the parking lot. The witness told police that a vehicle pulled up to a black, two-door passenger car that had in it two white males who appeared to be in their 20s, he said. The witness saw something exchanged between the two vehicles, Forrester said.

According to Forrester, the witness was able to get the license plate number of the black car, which helped a patrol officer locate the vehicle at approximately 3:30 p.m. He said the vehicle, a 2013 Hyundai Genesis, made an improper stop at the Republic Avenue and South Santa Fe Avenue intersection, and the officer pulled the vehicle over for a traffic stop.

When the officer made contact with the driver, he smelled the odor of raw marijuana, Forrester said. An investigation was conducted and during the search of the vehicle, approximately 25 grams of raw marijuana and 26 boxes of vape cartridges that had THC in them were found, Forrester said.

The driver, Indy Boland, 20, of Salina, was arrested on suspicion of the following, Forrester said.
