A Halfmoon man was arrested on a felony drug charge Sunday evening after police investigated a suspicious vehicle at a McDonald’s, the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department said.

John E. Driscoll, 23, of Midway Mobile Home Park, was arrested on a charge of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, deputies said.

The department said a patrolling deputy investigated a vehicle at the McDonald’s near Northway Exit 8 around 8 p.m. Sunday, leading to Driscoll’s arrest for alleged possession of “Ecstasy” with intent to sell.

He also faces misdemeanor counts for alleged possession of small amounts of heroin and crystal methamphetamine, and a hypodermic needle.

Sgt. D.P. Morley said he appeared in Town Court and was sent to the Saratoga County Jail in lieu of bail.
