A man faced charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute during a Thursday morning Recorder's Court hearing after he was accused of vandalizing his father's car.
Tobias Bulger, 23, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, criminal trespass and possession of a drug related object. His case was heard by Judge Michael Cielinski.
An officer told the court that police first met with Bulger while investigating neighborhood vandalism. Bulger's father reported that someone had keyed his car and caused about $500 of damage. His father's car sustained about $500 worth of damage and had expletives carved into the exterior.
When police arrived to question Bulger about his father's car, Bulger invited the officers in. While one officer was questioning Bulger, another found about half an ounce of marijuana in the kitchen. One bag contained about 5.5 grams of marijuana, while another contained about 7.5 grams that were divided into seven separate baggies. The marijuana was valued at $130.

Police then began to search Bulger's house. They found a digital scale with marijuana residue in the common area.
During the course of the investigation, police determined that Bulger was also the person who vandalized his father's car.
Bulger was arrested and charged with criminal trespass, possession of a drug related object and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. He was taken to Muscogee County Jail.
During Thursday's 8 a.m. hearing, Cielinski set Bulger's bond at $6,500. His case will be forwarded to Muscogee County Superior Court.
