A recent report of erratic driving led to multiple charges for a Massachusetts man.

According to Massachusetts State Police, shortly before midnight on Friday, a Trooper assigned to State Police-Yarmouth was en route to his assigned patrol area traveling on Route 6 eastbound in Sandwich. At that time, he observed a white Chevrolet Blazer traveling at 80 miles per hour and crossing over the center lane markings, nearly striking another vehicle. The speed limit on this area of Route 6 is 55 mph.

The Trooper stopped the vehicle and identified the operator as 26-year-old David Kilburn of West Bridgewater. While speaking to Kilburn, the Trooper observed several items consistent with the sale and distribution of illegal narcotics. After an investigation on scene, the Trooper conducted a search of the vehicle and located approximately 50 grams combined of substances suspected to be Cocaine and Crack Cocaine. He also located a digital scale, packaging materials, and a large amount of cash.

Kilburn was placed under arrest and transported to the Bourne Barracks for booking. A bail commissioner was contacted and set bail at personal recognizance.

Kilburn was scheduled to appear at Barnstable District Court for arraignment on the charges of Possession of a Class B Drug with Intent to Distribute, Trafficking in Cocaine, Marked Lanes Violation, and Speeding.
