Cody Alan Waddell, 27, of Bellefontaine, was charged with felony possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under suspension as a result of a traffic stop Friday evening.
Officers of the Washington Township Police Department on patrol about 9:25 p.m. in the area of U.S. Route 33 and State Route 708 observed a vehicle traveling the roadway with a vehicle defect.
Officers initiated the traffic stop and made contact with the driver, Waddell, and noticed signs of criminal activity. Waddell was asked to exit the vehicle. A consent search was granted and officers located methamphetamine inside a red sunglass case. The defendant advised officers he was recently given the sunglass case and was told not to open it due to it being broken.
Officers also located a make-up container containing two pieces of a white crystal substance also believed to be methamphetamine.
Waddell was placed under arrest and was transported to Logan County Jail.
