JASPER — A Tuesday night traffic stop on a scooter in Jasper elicited a felony drug possession accusation.
The Jasper Police Department stopped a 2014 Kymco scooter operated by Christopher D. Barrett, 28, 257 Brucke Strasse, at 9 p.m. at 14th and Newton streets because of an expired plate.
While conducting the stop, police said, Barrett allegedly gave indications of nervousness and evasiveness.
Police say Barrett gave consent for a search of his person, which allegedly revealed the presence of 1 gram of a white crystalline substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine. Police said it was inside Barrett’s right, front coin pocket.
Authorities booked Barrett into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:24 p.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of possession of methamphetamine.
