WASHINGTON, December 9, 2013 — According to Foreign Policy magazine, an Army civilian contactor was caught with nearly an ounce of marijuana when going into work at the Pentagon last month.
The illegal drug was found during an enhanced routine security check on November 9, 2013.
Officials declined to provide any additional information about the person who was found in possession of the marijuana but did state that anyone with an illegal drug in their possession is subject to criminal prosecution.
Foreign Policy checked the Virginia Pentagon docket and was unable to locate any recent drug possession charges.
The November 9 search also discovered four knives, pepper spray and drug paraphernalia being carried by others entering the government facility that day.
The enhanced search was not in response to any threat but is part of a regular protocol.
