JASPER — The Jasper Police Department arrested a man on felony marijuana charges following an early morning traffic stop today.
An officer with the department conducted a traffic stop at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday on a blue Toyota Corolla at 26th Street and Birk Drive. According to police, the officer observed the vehicle drive into the opposite lane of travel (left of center) and come to a stop for a few seconds.
Ares, JPD's K9, was called to the scene and conducted a free air sniff around the vehicle, which was determined to be driven by Caleb J. Hundley, 23, of 923 Mill St.
A positive indication for the presence of illegal narcotics inside the vehicle was given by Ares, according to police.
A search was conducted on the vehicle and officers allegedly located 360 grams (.79 lb.) of a leafy, plant-like substance that field-tested positive for marijuana.
Police say after an investigation was conducted, it was determined that Hundley was allegedly distributing the marijuana to his friends, along with using it for personal use.
Due to the amount of marijuana found, prior convictions, and statements made by the subject, police say the charges were elevated to Level 6 felony counts of possession of marijuana and dealing in marijuana.
Hundley was arrested and transported to the Dubois County Security Center on the above charges.
