Traffic stop ends in meth arrests
Two men are behind bars in Holmes County after a traffic stop yields methamphetamines.
A gold car was traveling on Highway 79 on Jan. 22, when a Holmes County Sheriff’s Office Deputy conducted a stop for a traffic infraction. According to HCSO, as the deputy approached the vehicle the passenger, identified as Cody Campbell, and the driver identified as Stephen Savage, swapped seats.
Savage told the deputy they had switched seats because he did not have a driver’s license and that there was marijuana in the vehicle.

HCSO conducted a search of the vehicle and found a pen straw under Campbell’s leg containing methamphetamine residue. A search of Campbell’s person found a plastic baggie of methamphetamine and a marijuana joint in his jacket pocket. Also located in the vehicle was a Crown Royal bag containing marijuana and methamphetamine.
Savage is charged with possession of methamphetamine, DWLSR, possession of paraphernalia, and resisting arrest without violence.
