Roland man facing drug charges

Tuesday, February 13, 2024 - A Roland man was charged Feb. 9 with unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute.

Mark K. Posey, 62, could face up to five years in the Department of Corrections and a fine of up to $20,000 if he is convicted. He was also charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.

On Jan. 29, Roland police officers observed a greenish-blue Chevrolet with a cracked left taillight which prompted the officers to initiate a traffic stop.

When officers approached the car, Posey opened the door, and the officers could smell the odor of burned marijuana.

Posey then began to exit the Chevy, claiming he had a leg cramp.

Posey told officers that he did not have anything illegal on him, but when he was searched, the officers pulled two packs of cigarettes from the pockets of his overalls. One pack was unopened, but the second pack was open. Posey said someone had given him the second pack.

Inside the open pack, officers discovered a clear plastic baggie holding a white, crystal-like substance.

Posey was handcuffed and asked again about any illegal items on him. After a brief conversation, he admitted to having some methamphetamine in his right pants pocket. Officers checked the pocket and found a clear plastic baggie wrapped in a brown paper towel with four individual baggies that also held the white substance.

Posey was then transported to the Roland Police Department.
