WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A Wichita Falls teenager is back behind bars for the second time this summer accused of possessing a weapon. 

Xavier Jose White, 18, was the passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by police on Wednesday evening at Brook Avenue and Keeler Avenue. 

Officers on the scene said while speaking to White and the driver they could smell marijuana coming from inside the car.

Both were asked to step out of the car to be searched. Officers said White admitted to having marijuana on him. A small bag of marijuana was found inside White's front left jean pocket. 

During a search of the vehicle, a black Hi-Point .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun was found directly under White's seat. 

Police said White had immediate access to where the gun was located. 

White was arrested and charged with Possession of Marijuana and Unlawful Carrying Weapon. 

On Thursday, June 16, White was arrested alongside Kwamain Martinell for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm when police said a .45 caliber handgun was found in the front of White's waistband and an additional loaded magazine was found in his pants.

In September 2016, White was arrested along with a juvenile accused of sexually assaulting a classmate at Hirschi High School.
