Pine Bluff police vice and narcotics officers on routine patrol Monday stopped a car that matched the description of a stolen vehicle and arrested the driver after reportedly finding drugs in the vehicle.

Marvin Ford, 29, reportedly admitted that the crack cocaine and marijuana found in the vehicle were his, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing for Ford on Tuesday.

Detective Dexter Lunsford reported that officers were on West 13th Avenue when they saw a black Ford and when they stopped the car, determined that it was not the stolen vehicle.

Kizer said detectives found a bag containing three grams of an off-white substance that field tested positive for crack cocaine, and a second bag containing a small amount of marijuana.

Lunsford reported that Ford waived his right to an attorney and said he “used the drugs to get high.”

Kizer said Ford had previously been convicted of several felonies including aggravated robbery for which he served a sentence in the penitentiary. He also had a charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver pending in circuit court, Kizer said.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Ford after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver.

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent Ford and told him to come back to court Feb. 27.
