Police arrest driver for meth possession after traffic stop

Columbus police arrested a local woman on two drug-related charges after police stopped her for a traffic violation.

Nadia Brown, 25, 3134 N. Marr Road, was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of a legend drug injection device at about 5:20 p.m. Monday, said Lt. Matt Harris, Columbus police spokesman.

Columbus Police Officer Lukas Nibarger stopped Brown near Seventh and Washington streets for failing to signal a turn, Harris said. Nibarger noted the expiration sticker on Brown’s license plate belonged to another vehicle, Harris said.

As Nibarger made preparations to tow the vehicle and inventoried the vehicle’s contents, he found four syringes in the vehicle, one that contained methamphetamine, Harris said.

Brown was taken to the Bartholomew County Jail where she is being held in lieu of  $65,000 bond.
