A Pine Bluff man arrested on misdemeanor drug charges Tuesday afternoon will also face a felony charge after deputies reportedly found a bag containing marijuana in his sock while he was being processed at the jail.

Andre Olivier, 20, who was listed as a student at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, reportedly told Tri-County Drug Task Force Investigator Chris Drye the marijuana was for his personal use.

Drye reported that Jail Deputy James Hoffman was searching Olivier as part of the booking procedure when he saw a bulge in Olivierís sock that turned out to be a plastic bag containing a smaller bag with four pieces of paper wrapped around marijuana, weighing five grams.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $2,500 bond for Olivier after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with furnishing a prohibited article.

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defenderís Office to represent Olivier and told him to come back to court Nov. 7 at 9 a.m.
