A Columbus man was charged with a felony and several misdemeanors following a traffic stop last week, which allegedly led police to several stashes of drugs.

According to reports, an Upper Arlington Police Division patrol officer conducted a random license-plate check on a vehicle near the intersection of North Star Road and Westminster Drive at 2:45 a.m. May 19 and determined the registered owner had three warrants out of Columbus and did not have a valid driver's license.

The officer stopped the vehicle and confirmed the man driving it was the registered owner, and reportedly while patting the man down found a glass pipe in his pants pocket.

Following the discovery, the officer searched the man's vehicle and reportedly found 0.3 gram of marijuana and 0.4 gram of hashish.

The man then was transported to Franklin County jail, where he reportedly was searched again, and deputies there found a set of small spoons and a bag of what tested positive for 0.4 gram of cocaine.

The man subsequently was charged with felony possession of cocaine, as well as misdemeanor charges of possession of hashish, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
