Deputies charged a Denver man with cocaine possession following a traffic stop in the eastern end of the county on Tuesday.
Authorities said they stopped the vehicle after noticing a headlight was burned out. The stop occurred around 2 p.m. on N.C. 27, near Asbury Church Road, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Jonathan Matthew Tucker, 26, of 6691 Denver Heights Circle, had been driving the vehicle.
It wasn’t until after deputies checked out Tucker and another person inside the vehicle, and the two individuals were getting back into the vehicle, that they discovered the cocaine, a report said. The illegal substance was located in a bag on the ground, deputies said.
Tucker was charged with one felony count each of possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance and maintaining a dwelling or vehicle for a controlled substance. He also faces one misdemeanor charge for driving while his license was suspended or revoked.
Tucker has since been released from the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center on a $10,500 secured bond.
