Portland police say two teens were carrying more than 60 grams of cocaine when they were pulled over around midnight Sunday after making an illegal U-turn.

Cole Swan, 18, of Yarmouth, and an unidentified 16-year old were both charged with aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs, unlawful possession of cocaine. Swan also was charged with violating conditions of release, police said.

Officers said they found over 62 grams of cocaine, 8.17 grams of Cocaine HCL, $1,550 in cash, a digital scale and a loaded handgun when they pulled the car over on the corner of Fox and Franklin streets. A third occupant of the car was not arrested, a police spokesperson said.

Swan was taken to Cumberland County Jail and the 16-year-old to the Long Creek Youth Development Center.

Portland police had arrested Swan in April after they said officers witnessed what they believed to be a drug transaction on Portland Street. Police said at the time that Swan ran away, but was eventually taken into custody and charged with aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs and refusing to submit to arrest.
