A Milford man is in jail after police say he tried to swallow drugs during a traffic stop.

Harrington Police pulled over 20-year-old Brandon Parks on Route 13 near Porter Street on Tuesday. Officers say the owner of the vehicle was wanted out of the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas. When they tried to arrest Parks, he resisted, but was eventually taken into custody. After talking with the other people in the vehicle, officers say they saw a leafy substance on his shirt. Police say the in-car surveillance camera showed Parks take a baggie of marijuana from his buttocks and try to eat it.

Parks has been charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence, and resisting arrest. Parks was found to be wanted by the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas for failing to appear for drug diversion. He’s being held at SCI on $18,750 bond.
