A teenager was arrested on crack cocaine distribution and marijuana charges this weekend after a routine traffic stop in Rock Hill.

Police noticed a 2001 Ford Taurus going left of the center lane on Cauthen Street Saturday evening just before the driver improperly parked his car curbside facing traffic.

An officer went up to the car and noticed the driver, Raekwon Ervin, 18, trying to hide a pill bottle, a Rock Hill Police report states.

The officer took Ervin to the back of his patrol car, where a plastic baggie with 2.14 grams of crack cocaine fell from Ervin's pants leg, the report states.

Police also found 3.12 grams of crack cocaine in a baggie, .47 grams of marijuana in a pill bottle, two digital scales, .1 gram of loose crack cocaine behind the driver's seat and a silver marijuana grinder with .47 grams of marijuana in the passenger floorboard, the report states.

Ervin was charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and possession of marijuana, according to police.
