CAMBRIDGE - Judge Ted Hamer on Monday found probable cause to believe a Flint, Mich,, man committed a felony.|
Geneeo police officer Darren Jaros testified that at 7:30 p.m. on June 8, he pulled over a 1998 Chevrolet Suburban for failure to stop when emerging from a private drive at Beck's South convenience store. He said he stopped the vehicle on the westbound entrance ramp onto Interstate 80.
He said he ran a check on the driver and learned that DeMario M. Angel, 35, was wanted on a warrant from the U.S. Marshal's office.
Officer Jaros said Mr. Angel pushed him and he fell, and, as he was getting up, he saw Mr. Angel throwing a brown sack to the ground. He said he used a taser to stop Mr. Angel, then found what turned out to be 393 ecstasy pills in the bag.
Mr. Angel is charged with Class X felony possession with intent to deliver 200 to 600 ecstasy pills, Class 1 felony possession of 200 to 600 ecstasy pills, Class 2 felony aggravated battery of a peace officer and Class A misdemeanor resisting a peace officer.
Officer Jaros said that he also found $1,293 in currency in Mr. Angel's pocket and multiple Social Security cards with different numbers.
The judge also found probable cause for forfeiture of the money and the vehicle. It was noted Mr. Angel would have to put up the entire $2 million cash bond for release and not just 10 percent.
