ITHACA, N.Y. — A man was indicted Thursday for having heroin and cocaine in Lansing and fleeing from police back in March.

Zavierus D. King, 21, he was pulled over at 8:10 p.m. March 29 in Lansing by New York State Police and evaded troopers. An investigation led officials to find 9.9 grams of cocaine and 10.6 grams of heroin, which police say King intended to sell. At 10:51 p.m. the same night, in Dryden, King allegedly snapped a cell phone in half to destroy evidence.

He was indicted on two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fourth-degree-criminal possession of a controlled substance. He was also initially charged with resisting arrest, failure to comply with a lawful order, and tampering with physical evidence.

Records indicate that he is still in custody at the Tompkins County Jail.
