Two Gainesville men were arrested around midnight Thursday after police say they discovered marijuana, cocaine and MDMA in their vehicle during a traffic stop.

Gerald L. Greene, 37, and Sha-heen K. White, 39, were stopped by an officer in the 300 block of East University Avenue for making an illegal left turn, according to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report.

During the stop, the officer saw several marijuana seeds inside the car and began searching. The report states he found one bag with 7.7 grams of pot, several other bags totaling at 8.7 grams of pot, 8 bags of cocaine weighing 1.6 grams and two bags containing 0.5 grams of MDMA.

Police say Greene, of 6207 SW 11th Place, denied knowing the drugs were in the car and said they were planted.

White said his name was “Michael K. Moore” because he knew there was a felony warrant on his name out of Marion County, according to the report. The officer found his ID card in his wallet, which had his actual name.

Greene was arrested on charges of felony possession with intent to sell. He was booked into the Alachua County jail, where he remained Friday in lieu of a $70,000 bond.

White was arrested for giving a false name and was booked into the jail, where he remained Friday in lieu of a $25,000 bond.
