Ferrell Jr., 29, was in the backseat of car pulled over near the intersection of Taylor Avenue and Washington Avenue, when police noticed that he had pistol. He was removed from the vehicle and searched, at which time police found nearly 8 grams of cocaine, 3.5 grams of marijuana and nearly $800 in cash, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office. Ferrell told police he had a concealed carry permit for the pistol and that the cocaine was for personal use. Because of the packaging of the drugs and the cash, and Ferrell admitting that he was unemployed, the Racine County District Attorney’s Office charged him with possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to deliver.
