EASTON, Md. (AP) - A Maryland carnival worker who was in control of a ride intended for children has been arrested on multiple drug charges.

Easton police say 21-year-old John C. Decker of Brooklyn Park was smoking marijuana in a portable restroom while on break at the carnival grounds off of Marlboro Avenue on Thursday. Detecting the odor, authorities say they searched Decker and found him to be in possession of Oxycodone and suspected marijuana.

Decker has been charged with possession of controlled dangerous substances, possession of paraphernalia and reckless endangerment. Police say he was also issued a civil citation for possession of marijuana under 10 grams.

According to jail records, Decker has been released on a $3,500 bond. It was not immediately clear if he has hired an attorney.
