GREENWOOD, Ind.–A driver made the mistake of drifting over the center line of Morgantown Road on Tuesday evening, narrowly missing a sheriff’s deputy traveling in the opposite direction. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says that the officer immediately stopped the car driven by Jeffery Margason, 48, of Greenwood. Margason supposedly told the deputy that he was on his cell phone and that had caused him to drive erratically. Unconvinced, the deputy conducted a free-air sniff search of the vehicle with his canine partner who hit on odors coming from both sides of the car.
Inside the vehicle, investigators allegedly found two syringes, a drink mix canister with white residue, a straw, a glass pipe, two baggies of a white substance, digital scales, a butane lighter with two fuel canisters, and two baggies of crystal methamphetamine.
Margason was transported to Johnson County Jail and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a hypodermic device, and possession of paraphernalia. He was also cited for driving left of center.
