Despite the attempt to dispose of the alleged drugs, the bag, which police say contained over 41 grams of crystal methamphetamine and oxycocet pills, was picked up by officers watching the window.

Police then arrested the man inside the apartment and during a search of his home, police say they found more than $8,000, a scale and dime bags.
