Ernest Lamar McConnell, 59 of Rome, was arrested this week after a traffic stop on North 5th Avenue turned up cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Reports said that after being stopped for tinted break lights McConnell told police that there was “probably marijuana in the car”.

A search of the vehicle led authorities to a glass smoking device containing cocaine and a bag of marijuana.

McConnell is charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, driving on a suspended license, possession of drug related objects and break light violation.
