Mark F. Welka III, 19, of Orchard Park, was arrested on drug charges after Buffalo police pulled him over on Swinburne Street Sunday morning. After Welka, allegedly driving south on Swinburne, drove without stopping at the intersection of Ashley Street, he was pulled over about 9:30 a.m.
Once Welka was out of his vehicle, officers reported finding he had more than a dozen highly-addictive Xanax pills loose in his right pants pocket.
Welka was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, possession of controlled substances outside their original container and failing to stop at a stop sign.
