SACO, Maine — A traffic stop led to a felony charge for an Old Orchard Beach man Wednesday after police found drugs in the car he was a passenger in.

Anthony Lacomb, 26, is accused of unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs, a Class B felony, Saco Deputy Police Chief Jeffrey Holland said.

The vehicle Lacomb was riding in was pulled over at 8:45 p.m. Wednesday on Beach Street for failure to yield, Holland said. When the driver opened his door, police could smell a strong odor of marijuana.

An undisclosed amount of pot, a bag of pills, a scale and $3,000 cash were discovered in the passenger side of the car, and police subsequently arrested Lacomb.

The driver was summoned for failure to yield and allowed to leave, the deputy chief said.

Lacomb was later released on bail, Holland said. The deputy police chief was unsure of how much Lacomb’s bail was. Lacomb is due in York County Superior Court on April 25.
