A 55-year-old Lackawanna man was charged with drug possession after his 14-year-old luxury car was pulled over in the 600 block of Amherst Street after he allegedly made a curious lane change about 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Rufus J. Simmons of Wood Street was arrested after officers reported finding in his jacket pocket a crack pipe and drug-related paraphernalia. He was flagged down after officers reported seeing him signal to make a left turn, only to have him turn into the right-hand lane. He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.
