That smell emanating from a 1993 Buick LeSabre parked behind the Groom Time barbershop in Pomona was not aftershave.

Pomona police had heard stories of possible narcotics sales at the shop, and a search of the white car Sunday turned up 35 grams of individually packaged marijuana bags, said Sgt. Chuck Becker of the Pomona Police Department.

Shop owner Marlon Singleton, 39, of Rancho Cucamonga was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to sell and held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
