A Big Clifty man was arrested Thursday after a traffic stop in Clarkson led police to multiple drugs.

At approximately 11 a.m. Thursday, Grayson County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Clay Boone conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by David E. Wease, 41, of Big Clifty due to the trailer he was hauling not having trailer lights.

According to Sheriff Norman Chaffins, Boone had a reasonable suspicion that Wease was in posession of an illegal substance, so he had Sergeant Fred Norder run K-9 Marco around the vehicle as Wease attempted to fix his trailer lights.

After Marco alerted to the vehicle, deputies were able to search the interior, revealing "approximately 3 ounces of crystal methamphetamine, approximately one gram of heroin, and a small amount of marijuana," Chaffins said.

Wease was arrested and is currently being held in the Grayson County Detention Center on a $25,000 cash bond. He is charged with trafficking in a controlled substance first degree (meth), trafficking in a controlled substance first degree (heroin), possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sergeant Boone was assisted at the scene by Sergeant Fred Norder, K-9 Marco, Clarkson Police Department and the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force.
