     | April 19,2012

    BARRE — A Barre man was arrested in St. Johnsbury on charges of possession of cocaine.

    Timothy Roberts Jr., 35, was cited Tuesday after a police search of his vehicle.

    According to police, officers in St. Johnsbury were called to the parking lot of the Mobil station shortly after 6 p.m. on a report of suspected drug activity.

    Shortly after arriving, police began speaking with a male who was in the passenger seat of a red 1997 Subaru Legacy station wagon. During the conversation, police reportedly saw a glass pipe, which is commonly used to smoke illegal drugs.

    After receiving written permission to search the vehicle, they seized several smoking devices, a silver spoon and a small pink plastic container. The container held a “white rocklike substance,” which later tested positive for cocaine, police said.

    Roberts is to appear in St. Johnsbury criminal court in June.
