Man faces more drug charges after aunt tries to help

‘A man’s plans to bail himself out after a drug bust went more than a bit awry over the weekend.

With the aid of a drug-sniffing dog, police found 48 grams of cocaine on the 32-year-old man after pulling him over for speeding, police said.

The suspect then arranged for his aunt to bring a small safe which he claimed contained money for his bail. But when his aunt opened the safe in front of a state trooper, they found cash, drug paraphernalia and another 16 grams of cocaine, police said.

Additional drug charges were filed against the man and his bond was increased to $125,000. He was later bailed out by another relative, police said.’
