Police arrested a man on drug charges while they say he was out searching for scrap metal around 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

After searching Calderon, police found half a gram of marijuana on him also.

Police arrested Calderon. He was taken to the Craighead County Detention Center where he faces a felony and a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia charge.
