A 21-year-old man was arrested on drug charges Friday when detectives found him with an ounce of suspected crack cocaine in his possession, Detective Lt. John Chella said.
Rajeir Vincent of 419 Seventh St. was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell at 12:30 p.m. at 11th Street and Linwood Avenue by detectives Joseph Cowell and Donald Flett, Chella said.
Vincent was arrested after detectives, conducting a drug investigation at 11th Street and Linwood Avenue, started to pat down Vincent for weapons when he became abusive and tried to stop the search and struggled, Chella said.
As a result, the drugs were found inside his pant leg. He also was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration, Chella said.
