UPPER DARBY — A Philadelphia man who voluntarily surrendered himself to Upper Darby Police on a year-old warrant wound up facing more criminal charges when he brought drugs into police headquarters, according to authorities.

Kuwan Anthony Colston, 35, of the 2000 block of Hunting Park Avenue, received two misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substances and one misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia after police discovered a small bag of heroin and a fentanyl patch on his person when police searched him.

In the affidavit of probable cause filed by Officer Robert Bennett, Colston arrived at police headquarters on the morning of July 18 to turn himself in on an Aug. 23, 2018, warrant for stolen property charges and a violation of a protection from abuse order. Colston was arrested and placed in a secure holding area at headquarters.

After telling Colston to take off his most outer layer of clothing for a search, Bennett used a metal detection wand around his body.

“The device alerted to the right side of Colston’s underwear. Inside the underwear affiant (Bennett) located a sealed metal foil package marked ‘fentanyl transdermal system 100 mcg’ along with a small blue envelope which contained a white powdery substance,” reads the affidavit.

Bennett used a small sample of the substance on a heroin field test kit which presumptively identified the powder as heroin. The rest of the substance of the fentanyl patch was sent out to a lab for further testing.

Colston reportedly told police the drugs were not his.

“How dumb can you be?” asked Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood when reached for comment. “How dumb can you be?"

Colston was released on unsecured $15,000 bail after a July 18 preliminary arraignment on the drug charges by Magisterial District Judge Kelly Micozzie-Aguirre.
