York, PA - A York City police officer on bike patrol arrested a York man suspected of selling marijuana and crack cocaine Friday night.

The officer, Michael Fissel, was on routine patrol with another officer at 9:14 p.m. when he saw the man, Laquan Beatty, 19, of the 100 block of South Duke Street, leaving the backyard of a house in the 100 block of Lafayette Street and getting into a car, according to the police report.

Fissel approached Beatty and asked him about being in the backyard, the report said. Beatty appeared nervous, according to the report, and was apparently looking for a way to run.

The officer took him into custody and a search turned up $173 in cash and baggies containing crack cocaine and marijuana, the report stated.
Beatty was taken to Central Booking for arraignment Saturday morning.
