Beller placed Lake in his cruiser, and then searched Lake’s vehicle and allegedly found 60 grams of marijuana.
“I found a large bag of marijuana in a back pack with several smaller baggies and one bag made up ready for sale,” Beller alleges in court records.
Beller then took Lake to the Clark County Jail, where more than $500 was found on him.
Lake allegedly told deputies the marijuana was for his own personal use.
He pleaded not guilty in Clark County Municipal Court on Tuesday morning and a judge set his bond at $3,000, according to Clark County Municipal Court filings.
