A top-level staffer for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) has been arrested and charged with possession of marijuana after he allegedly tried to bring the illegal substance into the senator’s office.
U.S. Capitol Police arrested Marcus Stanley just before noon on Tuesday as he made his way through the security screening area to the Senate Hart Office Building, according to a police report. Stanley allegedly tried to “remove and conceal an item from his pocket,” the report states.
An officer investigated Stanley and allegedly discovered a green, leafy substance, which later tested positive for THC, a main component of marijuana. Stanley was arrested and processed at Capitol Police headquarters.
Afterward, Stanley submitted his resignation to Boxer, according to her office.
“Marcus Stanley is no longer with this office,” said Zach
