A Lexington man was charged on Friday night with cocaine possession after police said he was stopped following a traffic violation and found with the drug.

Salisbury Police charged Gary Wayne Wunderlich, 51, of the 8900 block of South N.C. 150, with felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule II and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police stopped Wunderlich when they saw his vehicle’s lights were not on in the 800 block of Brenner Avenue and Old Wilkesboro Road around 10:30 p.m.

He told the officer he’d taken some pills, which turned out to be Percocet. Police later confirmed the pills were prescribed to Wunderlich. He did have a bag of white powder that tested positive for cocaine. Police said Wunderlich was in possession of one gram of the drug.
