Police tested the substances and they tested positive for meth and cocaine.

The methamphetamine weighed 18.8 grams and the cocaine weighed .3 grams.

Saied was arrested and charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group one over four grams and possession of a controlled substance in penalty group one under one gram. 

Police also said that both charges were enhanced due to the fact that Saied was within 1000 feet of a day care which is a drug free zone.
