BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- A North Carolina man apparently trying to feather his nest by selling illegal drugs is in jail because his plan laid an egg.    

The Times-News of Burlington reports (http://bit.ly/WtKYQH) a Graham man is accused of selling an undercover police officer a bag that he said contained an ounce of marijuana. The bag actually contained a half-eaten chicken sandwich. 

A warrant filed in the Alamance County Magistrate's Office says 23-year-old Dustin Rockwell Davis is charged with sell and delivery of a counterfeit controlled substance and sell and delivery of marijuana. Both are felonies. 

Davis was jailed under a $5,000 bond.  His attorney couldn't be identified Tuesday. 

Police said Davis sold the half-eaten chicken sandwich to the Burlington undercover officer on Jan. 30.
