Former Days Of Our Lives star Dylan Patton has been charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to sell.

Acting on a tip from an undercover cop, who made a purchase from Patton a few days ago, cops raided the actor's Los Angeles home on Tuesday (14May13), and took the 20 year old into custody.

He remains in jail on $30,000 (Gbp19,355) bond and has now been officially charged with the felony, according to Tmz.com.

If convicted, Patton faces up to nine years behind bars.
