Police investigating a reported drive-by shooting arrested a Virginia man on drug charges, county police said.

Richard Michael Kendall, 26, of the 8200 block of Getty Court in Springfield, was charged with possession of marijuana.

Police said a resident called police to the 500 block of Route 408 about 7 p.m. Saturday, complaining that someone had fired a gun from a small red car.

An officer stopped a car fitting the description moments later westbound on Route 408 near Waysons Corner, police said. The driver told police he was coming from Boones Motor Home Park on Route 408, police said.

After obtaining the driver's permission to search the car, Officer John E. Garfola found two 1-ounce bags of marijuana under the seat.
