Ice cream sandwiches, ice pops, marijuana, weight scales and a gun.

That’s what Conyers police said they found in an ice cream truck, leading to an arrest, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Police stopped Callaway on Hunting Creek Lane in Conyers Tuesday after a woman called police and told them the ice cream seller took a package from her mailbox, Channel 2 reported.

“That was just stupid ... stupid to sit and stalk my house,” Jerri Rogers told the news station.

Her daughter witnessed Callaway allegedly take a package from her mailbox, prompting police to pull him over and look through the vehicle, which they said included the gun and drug paraphernalia.

Callaway is currently in the Rockdale County Jail with a $21,000 bond, according to jail records.

Rogers said she did get her package back, which contained a purple wig she ordered online.

“It wasn’t going to match his skin tone or his hairdo,” Rogers told Channel 2, laughing.
