DEKALB -- A Norfolk father and son were arrested June 12 on drug possession charges with the son being jailed on $15,000 bail, according to state police.

Seth M. Hamm, 28, was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felony, after he was found to be in possession of more than two ounces of cocaine, troopers said.

The arrest reportedly took place around noon during a state police and Border Patrol stationary road check on U.S. Highway 11.

Troopers say a 2000 Checy pickup occupied by Ben L. Hamm, 59 and his son Seth, approached the road check, traveling north.

Ben was found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana and Seth had cocaine secreted in his undergarments, officers said.

Seth was arraigned in Fowler Town Court and sent to St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility on $15,000 bail or $30,000 bond, troopers said.

Ben was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and issued an appearance ticket returnable to the DeKalb Town Court on June 24 at 7:30 p.m., officers said.
