Elkton Police recently arrested a Russellville man on methamphetamine charges.
A news release from Public Information Officer Rocky Barr says 24-year old Daniel Stokes was pulled over on Streets Avenue for not using a turn signal. Officers noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle and Stokes allegedly surrendered a small amount of the illegal weed to police.
Police say they found a large sum of cash on Stokes' person, and a search of the vehicle turned up a large amount of methamphetamine and digital scales. A small safe was also located, which contained a stolen handgun Stokes said he purchased off the streets in Logan County.
Stokes was arrested and charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed weapon, unlawful distribution of a methamphetamine precursor and failure to use a turn signal.
He was booked into the Todd County Jail Sunday evening on a $50,000 bond.
