A Baltimore man was charged with possession of cocaine and heroin with an estimated street value of $380,000 following a traffic stop in Harford County.

Leonard Brown Mclean, 43, of the 4800 block of Crowson Avenue in Baltimore, was charged with two counts of possession with intent to distribute drugs and two counts of drug possession other than marijuana, according to The Baltimore Sun, which cited charging documents.

Mclean was stopped by a State Police trooper at around 7:44 p.m. while driving southbound on I-95 near the Tydings Bridge outside of Havre de Grace, according to court documents cited by the paper. The trooper said he stopped Mclean because he believed the front windows of the vehicle were illegally tinted.

Recovered were two large heat-sealed bags of suspected cocaine, a small plastic bag of suspected cocaine and heroin capsules and another small bag of suspected cocaine, according to court documents.

Mclean was arrested and taken to the Harford County Detention Center, where a District Court commissioner set bail at $350,000. Mclean posted bail the same day and was released, the Sun reported.
