A wanted driver was charged with felony possession of ecstasy and possession of crystal methamphetamine following a traffic stop last night.

Officers Matthew Reiss and Brendan Wham were on proactive patrol in the area of West 8th and North Monroe Streets and observed a green Oldsmobile Intrigue without a functional registration plate light.

The officers conducted a motor vehicle stop in the 700 block of North Monroe Street and discovered that the driver, Dwayne Brown, had an existing warrant for his arrest. Brown was also operating with a suspended license and was unable to provide proof of insurance.

As the officers took Brown into custody they observed a container by his feet with 30 pills of MDMA, commonly known as Ecstasy, packaged for sale. The container also contained 13.5 capsules and a plastic sandwich bag all containing crystal methamphetamine.

Dwayne Brown was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 20 and committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in lieu of $60,000 cash bail.
