The search yielded the discovery of 2.9 grams of methamphetamine, two pills containing amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, 0.9 grams of marijuana, and a brown pipe. He was arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Controlled Substance without a Prescription, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Equipment. His bond was set at $6000.
