COLUMBUS, Ind.–Two people were arrested on drug charges early Saturday morning in Columbus. Lt. Matt Harris, public information officer with the Columbus Police Department, says a patrolman performed a traffic stop on a vehicle and discovered the driver was behind the wheel with a suspended license. After speaking with Christina Sullivan, 42, of Columbus, and her passenger, Ricky Schoonover, 30, of Columbus, CPD called for a K9 officer to administer a free-sniff of Sullivan’s car.
The police dog alerted to the presence of narcotics. A physical search of the vehicle allegedly turned up methamphetamine, a controlled substance, and drug paraphernalia. Sullivan and Schoonover were arrested and transported to Bartholomew County Jail.
Sullivan was charged with driving while suspended, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Schoonover will answer to a meth possession charge.
