City man arrested in traffic stop - 04/22

CUMBERLAND — A city man was arrested Sunday on drug possession and distribution charges following a traffic stop by an officer on patrol in the Pershing Street area.

An odor of marijuana was reportedly detected when Cumberland Police contacted Harley Donovan Brooks Jr., 26, who was searched and found in possession of a small amount of marijuana.

A search of the vehicle then led to discovery of 720 grams of marijuana in the trunk of his 2001 Cadillac. The street value of the seized marijuana was estimated at more than $5,300, police said.

Police charged Brooks with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to stop at a stop light and failure to obey a traffic control device.

Brooks was jailed before posting $8,500 bond Monday for his pretrial release.
