Police find 2 pounds of marijuana during traffic stop in South Londonderry Twp.
SOUTH LONDONDERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A Palmyra man is facing drug charges after a six-month long investigation led by Lebanon County Drug Task Force members earlier this month.
Police pulled over Ronald Wyatt Sr., 60, on May 8 in South Londonderry Township while he was returning from a trip to Philadelphia.
Patrolman Nick Ague and his drug-sniffing K-9 Rex were brought in to search the vehicle. While searching inside, Rex was alerted to the smell of drugs.
Police found a bag under the hood containing over two pounds of marijuana, over an ounce of crystal meth and an ounce of cocaine. Investigators estimated the street value of the drugs was around $20,000.
Wyatt was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana, cocaine and crystal meth, possession of marijuana, cocaine and crystal meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was taken to Lebanon County Correctional Facility in lieu of $50,000.
Authorities believe Wyatt and others were responsible for distributing the drugs throughout Lebanon County.
The Lebanon County District Attorney expects more arrests to be made as the investigation progresses.
