A Jeannette man pulled over earlier this week for driving with a suspended license was taken into custody the next day and charged having of 25 grams of suspected crack cocaine in his underwear, police said.

Duran Eliard Foster, 19, was initially pulled over Wednesday evening when a city policeman recognized him as having a suspended driver's license, according to court documents. Foster was eventually released, but on Thursday he allegedly was seen driving the same car and was taken into custody.

Police confiscated the vehicle and said they found the suspected crack cocaine along with about 5 grams of suspected marijuana in Foster's underwear and less than a gram of Molly, an Ecstasy-like drug that he told police was for his personal use, in the car.

Foster is charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver, six counts of drug possession, fleeing or attempting to elude police, driving with a suspended license and driving an unregistered vehicle. He is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $50,000 bail. A Sept. 11 preliminary hearing is set before District Judge Joseph DeMarchis.
