LANCASTER - An 18-year-old Danville male was jailed Monday night on drug charges after wrecking the car he was driving on Fork Church Road and allegedly attempting to hide drugs from police.
Lamar M. Ford, 18, 111 Hill N Dale Street, Danville, initially was arrested for not having an operator's license and driving under the influence after the single vehicle accident at the intersection of Fork Church and Paper Mill roads around 8 p.m.
Police say that Ford and all three passengers in the vehicle admitted to smoking marijuana 45 minutes before getting into the vehicle.
According to the report, witnesses said Ford was seen walking back up the road to a fence, and then to a basketball goal in the driveway of a home. Police say they found a bag of cocaine at the first location, and pills in an unmarked container at the basketball goal.
