A Jasper man faces several drug and OWI charges after police stopped him Saturday night after a report from a female that he was following her and she was concerned for her safety.
A female called 911 about the man. Dubois County Sheriff's Office Deputy Clint Gogel and K-9 Chase located the suspect vehicle in Jasper near the intersection of State Road 56 and US 231 at the "Y."
The driver of the vehicle was identified as 19-year-old Kaden Steinhart of Jasper. Gogel requested assistance from the Jasper Police Department. Officers on scene believed that Steinhart was under the influence of drugs and began an investigation.
A search of Steinhart's vehicle produced a loaded Glock 9MM handgun, 18 tablets of suspected MDMA (ecstasy), 54 morphine sulphate pills, nine acetaminophen/oxycodone pills, 20 alprazolam (xanax) pills, THC wax, 291 grams of marijuana, paraphernalia, a digital scale, $988 in currency and drug paraphernalia.
Steinhart is currently being held without bond, pending a court hearing Monday.
Steinhart was taken into custody for the following offenses, some of which are enhanced because of the possession of a loaded handgun. They are: dealing in a Schedule II controlled substance, a Level 2 felony; dealing in a Schedule I controlled substance, a Level 3 felony; dealing in a Schedule IV controlled substance, a Level 5 felony; dealing in marijuana, a Level 6 felony; possession of a controlled substance, a Level 6 felony; operating while intoxicated, a Class A misdemeanor; possession of marijuana, a Class B misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
