A Rock Hill man looking to get high was found with a large knife he apparently stole from Walmart, according to authorities.

Police arrested the man and charged him with possession of a controlled substance.  He was being held in jail under a $570 bond.

According to a police report, officers were parked at a nearby restaurant when they watched a man walk in front of a Dick’s Sporting Goods Store and peer around corners as if he were being watched.  Officers then approached him as the man walked in front of a different clothing line store.

The man said he was just going for a walk because he was unable to sleep.  Officers searched the man and found a large machete on his person along with three bags of marijuana and a device used for smoking marijuana.  The man said he stole the knife from Walmart a little earlier in the day before he was looking for a place to get high.
