Officers discovered he was driving on a suspended driver's license. They conducted a K9 free air sniff of the car, and the dog indicated the possible presence of drugs. A search of the vehicle reportedly turned up .25 grams of marijuana, individually packaged prescription pills, 5 grams of crystal meth and .1 grams of liquid meth. There was also a bottle of synthetic urine found, needles, and a scale. The man was charged with two counts of felony intent to deliver a controlled substance, felony possession of meth, felony possession of marijuana, misdemeanor driving under suspension, misdemeanor possession of marijuana, and attempt to defraud a drug & alcohol test, which is a misdemeanor.
