A motor vehicle stop on Carroll Street yielded two arrests and a bottle containing phencyclidine (PCP) early Wednesday morning, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.

Lamar Hill, 27, of East Orange, and Joshua Jackson, 31, of Passaic City, were arrested on four drug charges.

Hill was additionally charged with obstructing a governmental function.

Both men were inside a black Chevy Malibu that failed to follow traffic rules on Carroll and Governor streets at around 2 a.m.

Officers approached the vehicle and smelled phencyclidine (PCP). Hill exhibited signs of being under the influence, authorities said. He refused to submit to a screening.

Hill and Jackson were removed from the vehicle. A clear bottle with 1.5-ounce PCP was seized from the center console area. Authorities seized $383 cash from Hill and $41 from Jackson.

Both men are being held at the Passaic County Jail.
