Indian Lake man arrested on felony drug charge

An Indian Lake man was arrested on a felony drug charge following a traffic stop late Wednesday afternoon just after 5 o’clock.

Officers from the Washington Township Police Department were on patrol in the area of Route 33 and Township Road 239, near Community Markets, when they observed a vehicle operated by a suspected suspended driver.

Authorities were delayed in conducting a traffic stop by other traffic, but they were able to identify the driver as Jeannie Heintz, 38, of Russells Point.

When officers got behind Heintz, she got out of the vehicle and entered a nearby business.

Authorities waited and eventually conducted a traffic stop and a search of the vehicle.

Heintz’s passenger, Cody Sloas, 28, of Russells Point, was asked to exit. Upon exiting, he handed officers a bag of marijuana.

Authorities conducted a search on Sloas, and located a chrome tube with a white crystal substance inside that Sloas stated was methamphetamine. Officers also found a dollar bill in his wallet with a white crystal substance that field-tested positive for meth.

Sloas was placed under arrest and charged with felony possession of methamphetamine.

He was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
