A man faced criminal charges Monday after authorities reportedly found meth and marijuana during a search, Jonesboro police said. 

Bobby Lee Posey of Jonesboro was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance after the search. 

According to a probable cause affidavit, Jonesboro Police Department Street Crimes investigators saw Posey sitting in the driver's seat of a car in the 700-block of Meadowbrook Drive around 8:15 p.m. Sunday.
