An Irvington man who was pulled over in Newark two years ago with large amounts of drugs in his vehicle has been found guilty of six narcotics-related offenses, the Essex County Prosecutor's Office said Friday. 

Keshawn Tucker, 44, whose prior criminal record includes carjacking and drug offenses, faces up to 10 years in prison due to the earlier convictions, the prosecutor's office said. Tucker is scheduled to be sentenced in August. 

Tucker was stopped at Broadway and Montclair Avenue March 11, 2017, for a motor-vehicle violation. Tucker was arrested when police discovered he was wanted on an open warrant. His license was also expired and suspended.

When he was placed in a patrol car, Tucker asked officers to retrieve his watch, medication and sweater. As they were collecting the items they spotted two bags in the center console containing 155 decks of heroin and 94 vials of cocaine. Police also found three cell phones and $375, the prosecutor's office said.
