County police said they arrested a man Monday accused of selling drugs from his car on a street in Shipley's Choice and seized eight bags of heroin, $1,759 and the car, a 1986 Toyota Celica.

James Edward McDonough, 27, of no fixed address was charged with possession of heroin and possession with intent to distribute it. He was being held in lieu of $65,000 bond.

A resident of the 1000 block of Rustling Oaks Drive in Millersville called police shortly after 10 a.m. to complain that a Toyota Celica had been parked in front of his house for 20 minutes and that the driver appeared to be making a drug deal with the driver of another car, police said.

Police said that when they arrived, they found only the Celica and its driver hiding behind the steering wheel.

The man, who was holding a pocketknife, gave several different stories and appeared to be very nervous when he asked by Officer Daniel R. Rodriguez what he was doing there, police said.

Officer Rodriguez spotted two bulges in the man's pockets when he asked him to get out of the car, police said. The officer said he checked the bulges and found two large wads of cash. He also found eight bags in the man's trousers of what later tested positive for heroin, police said.
