Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A Johnson City man is facing drug charges following a traffic stop November 29th in the Town of Dickinson.

Broome County Sheriff’s officials say a Deputy was patrolling the area of hotels on Old Front Street at around 8 a.m. when the officer stopped a Jeep Cherokee for an equipment violation.

The Deputy said 23 year old Jihad Ray, who was riding in the back seat, gave authorities the name of a relative to try to conceal that he was wanted in Binghamton for marijuana possession, but misspelled the last name when he gave it to the Deputy.

During the pat-down, the authorities say they found Ray was in possession of 20 bags of heroin.

Ray is charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor criminal impersonation.

He was sent to the Broome County Jail without bail.

The driver of the jeep was ticketed for the equipment violation and allowed to go.
