A Lexington man was charged with trafficking marijuana Tuesday after reporting that someone had stolen his drugs, according to court documents.
Stephen M. Bosch, 36, told Lexington police an armed man had forced his way into his apartment on Crosby Drive around 10:30 p.m. and took $180, according to police reports. While inside, officers noticed the smell of marijuana, and then Bosch admitted the man had also taken 101/2 grams of pot, the reports say.
Police searched Bosch's residence and found another $225 in cash, a digital scale, rolling papers and other paraphernalia and an additional 140 grams of marijuana, which had been hidden in the garbage, the report says.
In addition to trafficking, Bosch is charged with tampering with physical evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released Wednesday from the Fayette County jail on 10 percent of a $3,350 bond.
