WAUPACA – A Waupaca County man was arrested for allegedly possessing drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Police say they pulled the 24-year-old rural Ogdensburg man over around 2 a.m. Wednesday for an equipment violation on his vehicle. During the stop, police say they found 17 grams of cocaine, 30.7 grams of marijuana, 75 tablets of alprazolam, $335 in cash and drug paraphernalia.

Commonly sold under the name Xanax, alprazolam is a prescription drug used to treat panic and anxiety disorders.

The man is on probation after a 2013 conviction for felony aggravated battery, police say. He has not been formally charged in the drug case.
