A Hamlet man faces multiple drug charges in LaPorte after his arrest following a Monday morning traffic stop.
Officers from the LaPorte Police Department got a tip that a man in a white car in the 400 block of G Street was possibly using drugs. They responded at 8:41 a.m. and saw a white Pontiac Grand Am leaving the area. The car pulled across 4th Street in front of a vehicle that was northbound on I Street and nearly caused an accident, according to the police report.
An officer stopped the car, driven by Adam T. Jones, 22, of Hamlet. He was arrested for possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana and cited for failure to yield the right-of-way.
