A Detroit man who traveled a bus to Bismarck faces felony charges after police say they found a bag of pills hidden in his clothing.

Christian Owens, 31, was arrested Tuesday when undercover officers followed up on information that he was bringing drugs to the area, a police affidavit says. Owens allegedly had 85 oxycodone pills, worth as much as $6,000, hidden in a plastic bag in his groin area.

Owens is in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center in lieu of $2,500 cash bail. He made his initial court appearance on Tuesday. No attorney is listed for him in court documents.
