SALISBURY, N.C. -- A Salisbury man has been arrested and charged with sex offenses involving underage girls.

The Rowan County Sheriff's Office says David James Garland, 21, met the two 15-year-olds on Facebook.

Officers began investigating him after a deputy pulled him over in January. He had one of the girls in his car along with marijuana and paraphernalia.

Investigators say when they checked his cell phone for possible drug information they found pictures and texts involving the girls.

Garland is facing eight counts of assorted sex offense charges.
