Suspect accused of concealing drugs

Columbus police arrested a local man on two local warrants and drug-related charges after officers saw him walking near State Street and Indiana Avenue.

At 2:45 p.m. Friday, Columbus police officer Travis Harbaugh saw Adam W. Stephenson, 33, of 3718 Arapahoe Trail, walking near the intersection and confirmed there were warrants for his arrest, said Lt. Matt Harris, Columbus Police Department spokesman.

When Stephenson was taken to the Bartholomew County Jail, officers located a bag containing pills and tobacco concealed inside Stephenson’s clothing, Harris said. Stephenson was arrested on the two warrants, along with charges of possession of a controlled substance and trafficking with an inmate, Harris said.

Stephenson is being held at the jail in lieu of $18,500 bond, jail officials said.
