A man who fled from police led them to a stash of pot in an apartment, according to a DeKalb county incident report.

A police officer saw four males who looked to be juveniles smoking a marijuana cigarette in the 1200 block of S. Hairston Road in unincorporated Stone Mountain on March 5, the report states. One of the males had a black flag in his left rear pants pocket, "commonly displayed by gang members."
