A Bruce Avenue resident was arrested on drug charges over the weekend after police said they pulled over a car whose driver had a warrant out for his arrest.
Christian Kennedy was a passenger in the car being driven by Rakeem Newkirk, who police said they identified as having an outstanding PRAWN warrant.
Police conducted a motor vehicle stop late Friday night at the corner of Jackson Avenue and Hollister Street based on Newkirk's warrant, according to police.
When questioned if he had any drugs on him, police said Kennedy told them he did not but when answering he looked down at his lap and seemed nervous. According to police, people involved in narcotics sales, when questioned by police, look to the place where they hide drugs.
Police said a patdown revealed a bulge in Kennedy's pants, which turned out to be four baggies of marijuana and one baggie of MDMA, aka ecstasy.
Kennedy was charged with possession of under four ounces of marijuana and possession of a hallucinogenic substance. He was held on $10,000 bond and is due in court August 22.
Newkirk was processed for failure to respond and posted a court set bond of $235.
