CAMBRIDGE, Md.-  Authorities say a Federalsburg man is being held without bond after a traffic stop led to the discovery of drugs and weapons.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office said deputies pulled over Maurice Pinder's car in Cambridge Wednesday. Authorities said when the deputies approached, they saw that he had a brass knuckle knife combination weapon in his pocket.

He was asked to get out of the car but refused and was assisted out, the Sheriff's Office said.

According to investigators, Pinder removed a clear baggie filled with cocaine from his pocket and tried to discard it.

The Sheriff's Office said Pinder was then placed under arrest and a deeper search revealed more baggies, four cellphones, an electronic scale, $770 cash and a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun, which was loaded with 13 rounds of ammunition.

Pinder was charged with having a loaded handgun in a vehicle, possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of cocaine and possession with the intent to distribute cocaine.
