CHESWOLD, Del.- Cheswold police say officers arrested a man on a slew of charges after he was caught hiding suspected marijuana and narcotic painkillers inside of a Christmas tree.

When officers stopped 46-year-old Raymond Stoker for a minor traffic violation at around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, they said they could detect the strong odor of marijuana coming from his car.

Police said when officers searched Stoker's car, they found 60 grams of marijuana inside of a sandwich bag tucked into a Christmas tree that was laying on the car's backseat.

Police said that also hidden inside of the tree was a pill bottle containing narcotic painkillers. Officers also seized $660 that they say was hidden in Stoker's underpants. Officers seized the vehicle along with the cash and suspected drugs, police said.

Stoker was arrested and charged with driving with a revoked license, failure to signal 300 feet before turning a motor vehicle, four counts of aggravated possession of a controlled prescription narcotic, aggravated possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held on secured bail in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna.
