Area man arrested on multiple felony drug charges

An area man was arrested on multiple felony drug charges Monday night around 10:30.

Officers from the Washington Township Police Department were on patrol in the area of Route 33 and Township Road 94, just outside Russells Point, when they spotted a pick-up pulling a trailer with no trailer lights.

A traffic stop was initiated and the driver was identified as Charles Yeager, 25, of La Rue.

Yeager advised officers he was not a valid driver, but he did have a learner’s permit.

Officers noticed Yeager was acting suspicious, and when asked if he had anything illegal on him, Yeager stated yes.

A consent search was conducted and authorities found a bag of methamphetamine, marijuana dabs, glass meth pipes, and pills. The pills were determined to be a scheduled controlled substance. Yeager did not have a prescription for them.

He was arrested and lodged in the Logan County Jail.

Yeager was charged with two counts of felony possession of drugs and possession of drugs (misdemeanor).

The Russells Point Police Department assisted at the scene.
