PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- A man suspected of dealing marijuana was arrested Tuesday after narcotics detectives found a pound of the drug in his apartment, according to the Pawtucket police.

Adam D. Waters, 28, who'd been charged with marijuana possession before, had been under investigation by the department's special squad. When detectives approached him outside his residence at 1109 Newport Ave. on Tuesday, he ran away -- dropping a bag of marijuana as he fled, said Maj. Arthur Martins.

The detectives caught Waters and then, using a search warrant, entered his apartment, where they found a pound of marijuana worth about $2,000, plus about $700 cash, Martins said.

Waters was dealing marijuana on the street, Martins said, and detectives found packaging material in his apartment during their search.

Waters was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana, distributing near a school, and maintaining a common nuisance. He was arraigned Wednesday and ordered held without bail.

Waters has previously pleaded no contest to charges of marijuana possession, in 2007 and twice in 2003, according to court records. Each time, he received a year's suspended sentence and probation.
