A man wanted on drug charges was taken into custody after he called police to report an attempted carjacking, the Capital Gazette reports.

Police say Zakary Sunrise Hubbard was arrested after he and a friend reported their car stolen at gun point in Annapolis Saturday.

Hubbard initially told police he and his friend were driving to the store to purchase Easter items and agreed to give a man a ride once they got there. However, he later changed his story and told police they asked the man to help them buy marijuana. Hubbard alleges the man pulled out a handgun and tried to rob them.

Hubbard told police he was carrying two small bags of marijuana and over $1,100 in cash. A further search found he was carrying 90 clear plastic bags.
