COLUMBUS – A Columbus man was jailed for THC wax, while he was awaiting sentencing in a separate marijuana case in Platte County.

Efrain Trevino, 22, was pulled over on February 2nd, while driving a vehicle with no license plates on 1st Street, says an affidavit. Police say in the affidavit, that Trevino, and two passengers were inside the vehicle, where they found THC concentrated wax, marijuana edibles from Colorado, less than an ounce of marijuana, and marijuana paraphernalia.
