Upon seeing the police he attempted to elude them but he was accosted, and a bag that he was carrying, was searched.
The bag was found to contain thirteen clear plastic bags containing ganja, and seven white plastic bags containing crack cocaine.
He was taken into custody and subsequently charged. Murray is scheduled to appear in the St James Parish Court later this week.
