Derrick J. Trahan, 38, of 11138 Cherokee Path, Lakeview, was charged with aggravated possession of drugs related to an incident Wednesday afternoon.
Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched about 12:40 p.m. to the area of his address on a report of disturbance involving a man and a woman arguing in the street. A neighbor informed deputies who arrived on the scene that the pair had gone inside the residence.
Deputies said a female resident answered the door at the home and permitted them to come inside. When they spoke with Trahan, they observed that his eyes were discolored and glossy.
He and the female resident told deputies that there had been no physical altercation between them.
While at the home, deputies observed a rolled-up dollar bill that contained a powdery substance, along with a glass bowl and tobacco grinder. Also inside a nut and bolt found in a bedroom, deputies observed crystals of suspected methamphetamine.
Trahan was placed under arrest and lodged in the Logan County Jail. At the sheriff’s office, the substance from the nut and bolt field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
