Shortly after midnight on May 12, Maricopa Police contacted Nathan Dickerson and his girlfriend sitting in a vehicle near Rosa Drive and Miranda Way.
An officer asked Dickerson if he had any alcohol in the vehicle.
“Nathan (Dickerson) stated, ‘No,’ and then he reached in his pocket and gave officers a small baggie of cocaine,” an MPD probable cause statement reads. “Nathan, a short time later, disclosed that there was a plate and rolled-up dollar bill with cocaine on them. A search of the pickup truck was done and a white plate with a white powdery substance on it and a rolled bill nearby with white residue on it. Field testing was completed and showed positive for cocaine.”
Dickerson was charged with suspicion of possession of a dangerous drug, cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to MPD, and released at the scene.
