A tip from an informant led police to arrest a Cape Girardeau man Thursday for allegedly having powder cocaine and crack cocaine in his car.

David W. Riley, 39, was located by police at Huck's at 353 S. Kingshighway with approximately 7 grams of powder cocaine and 1 to 5 grams of crack cocaine in his possession, according to a probable cause statement by patrolman Paul Tipler.

Riley was charged with two felonies for possession of a controlled substance. He was released Friday on a $7,500 bond.

The suspect was convicted April 4, 1983, of two counts of felony burglary and one count felony stealing. He was convicted of felony escape from custody on July 17, 1985.
