A Graceville man was arrested after drugs were discovered on his person and in his vehicle after a traffic stop in Holmes County yesterday, April 26.
A deputy with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Christopher Finch, 48, for a traffic infraction on Highway 171.
Finch told the deputy he owned the vehicle but had failed to register it. Dispatch advised that the tag attached was not assigned to the vehicle. A check of the VIN confirmed that the vehicle had no tag assigned, nor was it insured.
A driver’s license check also revealed that Finch’s license was suspended. Upon taking Finch into custody, the deputy discovered a baggie of marijuana in his hand.
The deputy then searched the vehicle, where he found methamphetamine in a clear container.
Finch was placed under arrest and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamine, driving while licensed suspended or revoked, attaching a tag not assigned, possession of marijuana, and operating a vehicle without registering.
