Pasadena man arrested on drug possession charges after police receive tip

November 27, 1996

Police arrested a man on drug charges Saturday after an officer received a tip that someone was selling drugs at a Pasadena bar.

Carl Robert Ward, 44, of the 900 block of 220th St. in Pasadena was charged with possession of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Officer James McDermott went to the Greenland Inn in the 8000 block of Fort Smallwood Road about 10: 45 p.m. after the tip was received.

The tipster gave police a description of the man and said he would be sitting at the end of the bar.

McDermott found the man and took him outside to talk.

The man denied selling drugs, but gave officers a bag containing half a gram of cocaine and a straw, police said.

McDermott arrested the man.

About half an hour later, one of the bar employees called police after she found six bags of what later tested positive for cocaine underneath an ashtray where Ward had been sitting.
