Police asked if they could search the vehicle and he consented. During the search police uncovered 2.5 grams of cocaine, 44.7 grams of marijuana, 55.6 grams of marijuana, and 75 MDMA or ecstasy capsules, which all were in a bag in the trunk.

As they were questioned, one of the passengers, McLean, confessed that the items belonged to him. The other two men said they did not have any knowledge of the substances.

Johnson, 22, Harrisburg pleaded guilty to DUI in March and was sentenced to 72 hours to six months in jail.
