A man had fentanyl, Xanax and pot Wednesday night and had more than 0.8 pounds of Xanax last fall, according to charges by police who stopped a car and arrested him.
Luis Angel Cisneros-Garcia, 20, was accused of having 16 fentanyl pills, 25 Xanax bars and 2.9 ounces of marijuana Wednesday night. He also had a digital scale for weighing marijuana, the charges say.
Police served arrest warrants that said Cisneros-Garcia had 0.84 pounds of Xanax on one day last October in a house on South East Street as well as a digital scale and plastic bags like those used to package illicit drugs.
Arrest records say police stopped Cisneros-Garcia at Rock Quarry Road and Raleigh Boulevard.
