A search of the Chevy turned up two bags of cocaine and two bags of marijuana, along with a digital scale, all stuffed in shoes found in the back of the vehicle, Whitmarsh said.

The cocaine was weighed at 15 grams, while the marijuana was weighed at 35 grams; both were packaged for distribution, Whitmarsh said.
