A Havre de Grace teen was charged Tuesday after he allegedly bought drugs from a man sitting on a porch.

Jamar Terrel Coleman, 23, of the 400 block of Battery Drive, was charged with marijuana possession, distributing a narcotic and distributing drugs on a school bus or property.

Coleman was sitting on some steps in the 600 block of Congress Avenue when a 16-year-old male from Havre de Grace approached him and the two did a hand-to-hand drug exchange, according to Julie Morgan of the Havre de Grace Police Department.

The school property charge was filed because the incident happened within 1,000 feet of a school, she said. Havre de Grace High School is in the 700 block of Congress Avenue.
