Church P. Pemberton, 45, of Oneida was jailed on felony drug charges late Saturday night, after he was reportedly found in possession of several grams of methamphetamine, Suboxone, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.  According to arresting officer Keith Hawkins of the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, Pemberton allegedly attempted to conceal the drugs by hiding them in his pants.

“I’m caught.  I give up!” Pemberton reportedly said to Deputy Hawkins, who allegedly caught him attempting to shove the drugs down his pants.  Authorities say Pemberton had already shoved one large plastic bag of dope down his trousers, and was attempting to hide another, when they approached the passenger side of the car.  The bags reportedly contained a mixture of meth, marijuana, and Suboxone strips.

In all, authorities say they confiscated 4.22 grams of crystal meth, 5 Suboxone strips, and 61 grams of marijuana.  The cops also reportedly found a set of digital scales and 3 marijuana pipes in a shopping bag inside the car.

Pemberton, who told authorities he was already on probation for a prior felony, was charged with possession of meth, a schedule II controlled substance for resale; possession of schedule III and IV controlled substances; possession of drug paraphernalia, and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.
