Blake Kaminski, 21, of Urbana, was charged with possession of cocaine and illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility following a traffic stop Tuesday evening.
Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office on patrol in the area of U.S. Route 68 and Township Road 175 about 7:30 p.m. observed a vehicle with excessively dark window tint and initiated the stop.
While speaking with the driver, deputies noticed that the passenger, Kaminski appeared nervous and was rocking back and forth. Both he and the driver then were asked to exit the vehicle. The driver then gave consent for deputies to search the vehicle.
During a pat down search of the passenger, deputies recovered a plastic container in Kaminski’s pocket that he later told deputies contained cocaine.
The driver was issued a verbal warning about the window tint and released from the scene. Kaminski was placed under arrest and transported to the Logan County Jail.
Upon arrival, deputies noticed that his actions were very sluggish and he informed deputies that he had used cocaine shortly before the traffic stop.
Before entering the jail, the defendant told deputies he did not have any other illegal substances on his person. However, during an initial search, deputies recovered a single capsule from his sweatshirt pocket that field-tested positive for cocaine.
