City police arrested an Antwerp man on the 300 block of Mill Street early Friday night after a traffic stop allegedly led to the discovery of crack cocaine and a sizable amount of money.
Michael Q. Higby, 27, of 306 Main St., Antwerp, was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by police about 2:30 a.m. An investigation of the vehicle discovered Mr. Higby had 46 individually wrapped bags of crack cocaine. Money, as well as two Percocet pills, also were found on him, police said.
Police did not specify the exact amount or value of the crack cocaine, or the money recovered.
He was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class B felony, and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.
Mr. Higby, who is on parole, was taken to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, where was held without bail pending arraignment in City Court.
