He may not have picked the best place to stash his pot.

Madisonville police say they received a complaint that a man was placing marijuana in a flower pot in front of the probation and parole office.

Police say 26-year-old Travarius Baxter went into the office knowing he could possibly be searched, so he hid the marijuana before his visit. 

Detectives did find a small bag of marijuana in the flower pot.

Baxter was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence.
