Jamie Waylett has put the "pot" into Harry Potter.

Jamie Waylett has put the "pot" into Harry Potter.

The 19-year-old Brit, who plays wizard bully and Draco Malfoy wingman Vincent Crabbe in the blockbuster franchise, was arrested in London last Thursday on suspicion of possessing cannabis.

Scotland Yard busted the actor and an unidentified friend after stopping their vehicle, which Waylett was driving, and discovering quite the (alleged) stash. It's unclear why they were initially pulled over, though British tabloids claim police were aroused by either the young men's suspicious behavior or a tip-off.

"The car was searched and officers found eight bags of a substance believed to be cannabis," a spokesperson for the police said.

A further search of the actor's Camden home, which he shares with his mother and siblings, turned up about a dozen examples of suspicious foliage.

"Officers found a number of plants believed to be cannabis plants and equipment for cultivation. Both men have been bailed until July pending further inquiries and tests on the substances."

That's already shaping up to be a big month for Waylett. Harry Pothead Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is set for release on July 17.
