CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Philadelphia man was jailed on $50,000 bond after the Chambersburg Police Department's Crime Impact Team raided a borough apartment Tuesday night.

Eric A. Ferrell, 24, of 5029 N. Ninth St., was arraigned before District Justice David Hawbaker on charges of possession of crack cocaine and marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Police said they executed a search warrant at 9 W. Washington St., Apt. 5, at 7:43 p.m. The apartment's occupant was not home when police arrived, and the report said no charges had been filed against him.

The report said Ferrell was inside the apartment at the time of the raid. The department's Special Emergency Team and a K-9, "Cuba," conducted a search of the apartment, which police alleged turned up 75 small plastic bags of crack cocaine with an estimated street value of $3,750; a large piece of crack cocaine worth $200 and 19 plastic bags of marijuana worth $475.
