A Newark man is facing drug charges after a month-long investigation into the distribution and sale of cocaine in Wayne County.

Karmalus Herrington, 40, was stopped during a traffic stop. Herrington struggled with police during his arrest and swallowed a plastic bag they believe was cocaine. He is being charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal sale of a controlled substance, both felonies.

Police say more arrests are pending in their investigation.
