A Lancaster man was arrested in Canyon Country after authorities found more than six grams of rock cocaine, less than one gram of marijuana and nearly $3,000 in cash in his vehicle during a traffic stop, an official said Monday.

Adrian Lathan, 40, was traveling northbound on Highway 14 near Via Princessa on Sunday morning when the California Highway Patrol received a tip that he could be driving drunk, according to officer Michael Callahan.

Officers pulled Lathan over for unsafe lane straddling at Sand Canyon Road and Highway 14 just after 4 a.m., Callahan said.

Officers approached Lathan and determined he was under the influence of alcohol. They immediately arrested him for misdemeanor DUI.

They then searched the vehicle and found about 6.4 grams of cocaine, 0.7 grams of marijuana and $2,666 in cash, Callahan said. Lathan was booked for investigation of possession of cocaine for sale, officials said.

He was held at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station in lieu of $45,070 bail.
