A Rochester man is facing felony drug charges after a Thursday night traffic stop, Genesee County sheriff’s depu-ties said.
Marlon O. Hibbert, 35, was south-bound at 9:07 p.m. on West Bergen Road when he failed to obey a stop sign, deputies said. Further investiga-tion allegedly revealed his driver's license had been revoked.
Observations led deputies to believe there was more to the situation, so K9 “Rayzor” was requested to the scene. Crack cocaine and a firearm were then allegedly recovered after a search.
Hibbert was charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance; felony criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell; felony criminal possession of a weapon; third-degree aggravate unlicensed operation; unlicensed operation; and failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign.
Hibbert was committed to Genesee County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail. His passengers were released at the scene.
The investigation was conducted by deputies along with the Genesee County Drug Task Force and the county District Attorney’s Office.
