FORT ANN — A New York City man was jailed Wednesday after a traffic stop on Route 4 led to the seizure of large quantities of cocaine and marijuana, officials said.

State Police stopped Azeez A. Harris, 29, of Queens shortly before 4 a.m for veering out of his lane, the agency said in a news release.

Troopers smelled marijuana, and a search of the vehicle turned up 988 grams of cocaine, nearly two pounds of the drug, as well as more than a half pound of marijuana, according to State Police.

Police believe Harris was delivering the drugs to a location in Vermont.

He was charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor criminal possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. Harris was arraigned and sent to Washington County Jail for lack of bail.
