A 28-year-old West Avenue man was arrested in the 400 block of 14th Street at about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday after he saw police watching him and allegedly dropped a bag of heroin to the ground.

Angel Casasnovas was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance after officers said they found five bags of heroin in his pants pocket.

He was also charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance outside of its original container after he was found to be carrying an unmarked medicine bottle filled with various prescription drugs and two Oxcycodone pills.
