MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A man was arrested Tuesday after an officer with the Martinsburg Police Department said he saw the man driving a vehicle and knew he did not have a driver's license, according to court records.

Marcus Dontea Monchery, 20, of no fixed address, was charged with three felony counts of possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine, possession with intent to deliver Ecstasy and possession with intent to deliver a prescription drug, according to records.

According to a complaint filed by Martinsburg Police Department patrolman D.L. English, Monchery was found Tuesday with 6.3 grams of crack cocaine, four Ecstasy pills and two Percocet pills. English said Monchery also had $249 in cash in his possession.

English said in his complaint that he initially spotted Monchery driving a black Chevrolet Cavalier near Queen and Burke streets in Martinsburg, and later caught up with him in the 300 block of North Maple Avenue. Monchery attempted to conceal the drugs by tightening his buttocks while at the police department, according to English's complaint.
