Bellefontaine Police arrested Brad Doseck, 43, at large, Wednesday evening around 5 o’clock, after a tip was received from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office.
It was reported Doseck was a passenger in a vehicle traveling on Patterson Avenue.
Doseck was wanted on a failure to appear warrant through the Bellefontaine Municipal Court, along with an outstanding felony indictment warrant.
The BPD initiated a traffic stop in the 300 block of Patterson.
Officers made contact with Doseck and asked him to exit the vehicle. He complied and was placed under arrest.
The driver was told Doseck had a warrant for his arrest. He was then asked if there was anything illegal inside the vehicle and the driver said no. The driver also denied consent for law enforcement to search his vehicle.
Authorities asked the driver to step out of the vehicle. He claimed he did not have to, but after it was explained that police were giving him a lawful order, he complied.
Officers informed the driver they were going to conduct a narcotics “sniff” of the vehicle with K9 Boodik.
Boodik was deployed and alerted on the vehicle.
Authorities conducted a probable cause search and located small pieces of a white substance on the passenger seat, where Doseck was sitting, consistent with crack cocaine.
The white substance was field tested and returned a positive result for cocaine.
Doseck was lodged in the Logan County Jail on his outstanding warrant and his five-count felony indictment warrant which included second, third, and fourth-degree felonies for aggravated trafficking in drugs and trafficking in cocaine.
The five-count felony indictment warrant was the result of a drug trafficking investigation conducted by detectives of the Logan County Unified Drug Task Force.
