Man jailed on drug charges

A man is in Centre County prison on drug charges after a search of his vehicle yielded controlled substances and paraphernalia, State College police said.

Officers were called to a Faith Circle home Saturday afternoon after a resident said Mohammad Habibi, 35, would not leave the property, police said. He was found in his car, parked in the driveway of the home, police said. Habibi was lethargic, had slurred speech and was unable to complete sentences, police said. He consented to a search of the vehicle, and officers found 2.2 grams of suspected marijuana, about 150 pills in a breath mint container, a glass pipe and other paraphernalia, according to the criminal complaint.

The suspected marijuana later field tested positive, and the pills tested positive for amphetamines, police said. Habibi is charged with misdemeanor possession and paraphernalia offenses and was arraigned before District Judge Thomas Jordan, who set bail at $20,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
