Price was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving a vehicle under the influence and other traffic related offenses.  He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to SCI on $40,702 secured bond.
