LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Laurel police arrested a man on drug charges Tuesday night just two weeks after they arrested him on similar charges.

Police arrested 55-year-old Carl McClendon last night at a home on Woodbury Avenue. Authorities say they found 26.5 grams of cocaine and they charged McClendon with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute within 1500 feet of a church. 

This is not the suspect's first brush with the law.

McClendon appeared before a judge two weeks ago following a January 22nd arrest on multiple drug and gun charges. Authorities say his bond has been revoked as a result of the new charges.
