EASTON, Pa. -

A man wanted on a drug warrant is in more trouble after he resisted arrest, officials said.

Robert C. Blocker scuffled with police and was found with drugs when officers tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant for delivery of a controlled substance at 2:10 p.m. Saturday in the 600 block of Ferry Street in Easton, officials said.

Blocker yelled, "It's not me! It's not me!" when police tried to take him into custody and then had to be wrestled to the ground, officials said, adding that heroin, cocaine and marijuana, along with $1,485 in cash, were found on Blocker during a search.

Blocker was wanted for selling heroin to a police source in the 100 block of Northampton  St., Easton, on June 14, 2012, officials said.

Blocker, 35, of 55 South 5th St., Easton, was arraigned on charges of drug possession and resisting arrest and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $60,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 10:30 a.m. Feb. 15.
