A traffic stop resulted in the arrest of a Columbus man on preliminary charges of dealing in narcotics, marijuana possession and violating probation.
John A. Boyd, 27, 2736 Tyler Drive, was stopped while driving a vehicle on Second Street just east of Franklin Street at about 7:20 p.m. Wednesday, Columbus Police Department spokesman Sgt. Matt Harris said.
Officer Clayton Nolting determined that Boyd had a Bartholomew County warrant pending for a violation of original charges of dealing in cocaine or narcotic drug and possession of marijuana, Harris said.
When Boyd was taken into custody, police said they found 8 grams of heroin in Boyd’s clothing and located a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle’s ashtray.
Police also recovered more than $5,400 in currency during the traffic stop, Harris said.
Boyd is being held at the Bartholomew County Jail in lieu of a $168,500 bond, according to jail officials.
