MANKATO — A man is facing felony drug charges after he allegedly walked into the Mankato police station with cocaine in his pocket.
Geramy Durell Hopson, 33, who doesn’t have a permanent address, went to the Mankato Public Safety Center Thursday to report fraudulent withdrawals from his bank account.
The officer who took the report discovered that Hopson had a warrant for a driving without a license charge.
When Hopson was arrested on the warrant, seven baggies of cocaine were found in his pocket, a court complaint said. The bags collectively weighed nearly 20 grams.
Hopson also reportedly had nearly $8,000 in cash.
Hopson was charged Friday in Blue Earth County District Court with felony counts of drug sales and drug possession.
