Police found close to a half-pound of marijuana in the car of an Upper Macungie Township man who acknowledged to law enforcement that he was selling drugs.
Zachary M. Logue, 24, of 50 Kraft Drive, was picked up at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday by Freemansburg borough police at Pembroke Road and Garfield Street—a location in the Marvine-Pembroke neighborhood and very close to the border with the city of Bethlehem.
It was unclear from the arrest affidavit what prompted police to detain Logue, but a search warrant was later executed on his car at the borough police station.
Among the findings was 180 grams of marijuana packaged in nine separate clear sandwich-style baggies, a digital scale and a partially smoked marijuana cigar.
Logue told police that there was about a half-pound of pot in his car and that he was out of work and selling the drug to make money, according to the affidavit. Logue was carrying $450 when he was arrested, police said.
Logue was charged with possession and possession with intent to deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arraigned before on-duty District Judge David Tidd of Lower Saucon Township and committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail.
