Wen­dell B. Sav­age Jr., 27, of the 300 block of West Main Street, Lans­dale, was ar­rested Tues­day af­ter a war­ranted search turned up sus­pected co­caine in an SUs he was driv­ing.

Lans­dale po­lice had re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that Sav­age was al­legedly sell­ing drugs and driv­ing a blue Lin­coln Nav­i­ga­tor.

At 7: 20 p. m. Aug. 7, a Lans­dale po­lice of­fi­cer stopped a ve­hi­cle match- ing the de­scrip­tion and driven by Sav­age.

He al­legedly made com­ments dur­ing the traf­fic stop that led of­fi­cers to re­quest the as­sis­tance of a nar­cotic­strained Mont­gomery Town­ship K- 9.

Po­lice said the dog alerted them to the pres­ence of a con­trolled sub­stance in the ve­hi­cle.

Lans­dale po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant on the ve­hi­cle Aug. 8, which re­vealed nine bags of co­caine to­tal­ing ap­prox­i­mately 7.5 grams.

Un­suc­cess­ful at­tempts were made by po­lice to contact Sav­age, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease from Lans­dale po­lice.

The ar­rest war­rant was served when Sav­age ap­peared at Lans­dale dis­trict court for an un­re­lated sum­mary hear­ing.

“He was in­formed that for­fei­ture pro­ceed­ings had be­gun to re­lin­quish the Lin­coln Nav­i­ga­tor over to the Mont­gomery County Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice,” the re­lease said.

Sav­age was charged with pos­ses­sion of con­trolled sub­stance, pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance with in­ten­tion to dis­trib­ute, pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia and re­stric­tions on use of pro­ba­tion­ary li­cense.

Po­lice said that Sav­age was ar­raigned by Dis­trict Jus­tice Patricia Zaf­farano of Ambler, who set bail at $ 50,000 cash.

He was taken to the Mont­gomery County Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity af­ter fail­ing to post bail.
