HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. – State police found 50 grams of crack cocaine under the hood of a Detroit man's SUV after pulling him over for an insurance violation, officials said.

Troopers stopped a 2002 Cadillac Escalade around 9:55 p.m. Wednesday in Highland Park for a fraudulent insurance violation, according to authorities.

The 44-year-old Detroit man driving the Escalade didn't have a valid driver's license and was arrested, police said.

During a search of the SUV, troopers found small, empty zip-close baggies, a razor blade and a scale, officials said.

Troopers said they found 50 grams of crack cocaine inside the fuse box under the hood.

The man is being held while prosecutors review charges.
