A Derby man driving a car with a loud muffler and not wearing his seat belt late Thursday ended up with felony and misdemeanor drug charges, Buffalo police said.

When police flagged John Bruckman, 49, in the first block of Hertel Avenue they found a glass crack cocaine pipe with residue, a gram of cocaine and a bag containing crack cocaine, authorities said. He was charged with fifth- and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
