BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A man who crashed his car into a house five months ago is facing drug charges in connection with the accident, officials said.

Louis Rogan crashed his dark blue 2009 Mercedes into a home at 2313 Linden St., Bethlehem,  just after midnight on Sept. 22, 2012, and while police were checking his car, they found a tan wallet between the driver and passenger seats that contained the corner end of a plastic bag filled with cocaine, officials said.

Rogan broke a promise to meet with police on Oct. 8, and had not been in contact with them since Oct. 11, officials said.

Rogan, 21, of 1766 West Broad St., Bethlehem, was arraigned early Monday morning on charges of drug possession and possessing drug paraphernalia and released on $5,000 unsecured bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. March 4.
