Traffic stop leads to drugs, weapons charges



Around 12:15 a.m. Sept. 17, deputies stopped a 1999 Toyota 4 Runner on East Main Street in Eaton for expired plates.

During the traffic stop, a K-9 alerted to the vehicle and prompted a probable cause search which revealed a loaded shotgun in the back seat, a small amount of marijuana, a digital scale with residue, multiple small plastic bags with a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia, according to a media release.

In total, six grams of meth were found, all packaged separately, believed for sale.

James A. Sullivan, 44, of Lewisburg, has been charged in Eaton Municipal Court on felony counts of aggravated possession of drugs, aggravated trafficking in drugs, improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, and a misdemeanor of illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

He remains in Preble County Jail.
