Three Vicksburg men face charges of possession of crack cocaine after the drug was found in their car during a traffic stop for loud music at Wahl and West Pine streets Friday night, Vicksburg police Lt. Sandra Williams said.

She said Desmond Parker, 19, 1005 Stadium Drive; Felix Williams, 21, 2808 Yerger St.; and Samuel Matthews, 21, 204 Kendra Drive, were arrested at the scene. She said a fourth man ran and was not caught.

Parker was released Saturday on $10,000 bond. Williams and Matthews were being held without bond in the Issaquena County Jail, pending an initial court appearance.

Williams said the Mississippi Department of Corrections has holds on Williams and Matthews involving other offenses.

She said officer Wesley Miller stopped the car about 9:10 p.m. Friday. When the men get out of the car, the fourth man ran, dropping his jacket, which had crack in it.

After Miller found the crack in the car, she said, he arrested the other three men.
