Foley Man Arrested After Traffic Stop Uncovered Drugs
MAYHEW LAKE TOWNSHIP -- A Foley man was arrested Wednesday after a traffic stop led to the discovery of drugs.
A Benton County Sheriff's Deputy was on routine patrol near the intersection of 65th Street Northeast and Golden Spike Road around 3:30 p.m. when he saw a pickup with expired tabs.
The officer made a traffic stop and spoke with the driver, 39-year-old Ryan Stahovich. Authorities say Stahovich admitted he knew his tabs were expired and that his driver's license was revoked.
The officer asked for proof of insurance and was provided a name and policy number. The deputy learned the information wasn't true and arrested Stahovich.
During a routine search during the arrest, the officer allegedly found a large amount of cash and a baggie containing several grams of methamphetamine.
Stahovich was booked into the Benton County Jail on suspicion of drug possession, driving after revocation and no proof of insurance.
