County police arrested a Millersville man on drug charges Saturday morning after they found cocaine and marijuana in one of his shorts pockets, officials said.
Northern District officers Mary Kohlepp and Todd Powell were operating a radar gun about 9:40 a.m. on Church Street near Wasena Avenue when a man allegedly sped by in a 1989 Plymouth Horizon. They stopped the car and arrested the driver after he failed a field sobriety test, police said.
When officers searched the man they found a bag containing white powder and a green leafy substance, which later tested positive as cocaine and marijuana, police said. The drugs were in a cigarette cellophane wrapper in the right front pocket of the man's shorts, police said.
Jason Patton Baker, 22, of the 600 block of Stone Wheel Court was charged with possession of cocaine and marijuana and driving while intoxicated, police said.
