A St. Paul man was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance Wednesday after police said they found marijuana in the vehicle he was driving.

Jumoke Cryer was being held in the Ramsey County jail Thursday. He has not been charged.

Cryer was featured in a Pioneer Press article last week. Police labeled him an active gang member; the 23-year-old said he was not a gang member and never has been.

Police stopped a vehicle for speeding at Grand and Smith avenues at 1:20 p.m. Wednesday, according to a police incident report. Cryer was the driver, and the front passenger fled, the report said.

Cryer told police he didn't have a driver's license, and a check showed his license was revoked, the report said. Police inventoried the vehicle for towing and found a cooler with marijuana packaged in multiple plastic bags, the report said.

Officers arrested Cryer and, when they got to the jail, discovered he had a large amount of cash in his wallet, the report said. They seized the money and marijuana as evidence, the report said.

Cryer declined comment Thursday; he said a lawyer had advised him not to talk.
