CINCINNATI -- Police arrested a man Monday who they said prepared cocaine, fentanyl and heroin for distribution.

Lawrence Craig, 35, had more than 3 grams of fentanyl, almost a gram of heroin, more than 90 grams of cocaine and more than 88 grams of marijuana, police said in court records.

Craig ran from officers during a traffic stop, police said. Officers used a Taser to stun him. 

He also had a 9 mm Ruger pistol despite having been previously convicted for drug trafficking, police said.

Police charged Craig with three counts of trafficking in drugs, four counts of possession of drugs, carrying concealed weapons, having weapons while under disability and obstructing official business.

Craig was being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center pending arraignment Tuesday.
