Traffic stop nets drug charge



Passenger Heather Cox, 29, of Kenton, was lodged in the Logan County Jail on a felony count of possession of drugs as a result of a traffic stop about 8:40 p.m. Wednesday evening. 

Officers of the Washington Township Police Department spotted a silver Nissan traveling over the center lane of travel in the area of State Route 274 and County Road 61 and initiated the stop. 

A consent search was conducted on the vehicle. Located inside a brown purse belonging to Cox was a black jewelry bag that had a clear plastic baggie containing a white crystal substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine. Officers also located two separate glass meth pipes. 

She was placed under arrest. When asked, Cox advised officers she had been clean for two years.
