A Lake Worth man was ar­rested late Sun­day af­ter Palm Beach po­lice say they found sev­eral bags of pot in his car dur­ing a traf­fic stop.

Wanel Dorceus, 24, was charged with pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana over 20 grams and in­tent to sell, both felonies. He also was charged with pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia, a mis­de­meanor. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail early Mon­day morn­ing and re­leased Tues­day night on a $3,000 bond.

A Palm Beach po­lice of­fi­cer was check­ing on the Beach Club on North County Road when he saw Dorceus’ car leave the park­ing lot with its win­dows low­ered and smelled mar­i­juana, ac­cord­ing to the ar­rest re­port.

The of­fi­cer searched the car and found a “small bag­gie” of mar­i­juana, a carved pipe and a digital scale in the driver’s door pocket, ac­cord­ing to the re­port. A large Zi­ploc bag con­tain­ing a num- ber of smaller bags filled with mar­i­juana was found be­hind the pas­sen­ger seat, the re­port said. The mar­i­juana weighed 92.7 grams, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Dorceus was charged with in­tent to sell “due to the amount of mar­i­juana, how it was pack­aged, the plas­tic bag­gies, and the digital scale,” the re­port said.
