A Michigan man is facing criminal charges after police say they found drugs in his car during a traffic stop in Duanesburgh.

Princetown State Police say they stopped 32-year-old Randy Doviak for texting while driving and found concentrated cannabis (Hash) and marijuana.

While being questioned, police say Doviak admitted to leaving his 8 and 13-year-old sons at a Schenectady hotel while he went to the Camp Bisco Music Festival to deliver the drugs. Police say they found additional Hash and marijuana in the hotel room.

Troopers were able to locate the children, unharmed and in good health, at the Holiday Inn on Nott Terrace in Schenectady. Child protective services was contacted and made arrangements for their care.

Doviak is charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, Criminal Possession of Marijuana, and two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Doviak is being held in Schenectady County Jail without bail.
