Traffic stop nets drug arrest


Police arrested a 30-year-old Seymour man on drug charges following a traffic stop late Saturday.

Cody L. Hurst faces three preliminary Level 6 felony charges of dealing a Schedule III controlled substance and a Class C misdemeanor charge of paraphernalia possession after an incident over the weekend.

Officer Crystal Schapson stopped Hurst for an expired and false license plate around midnight Saturday at the intersection of Tipton Street and Sandy Creek Drive.

Hurst also was driving with a suspended license.

During a search of the 1992 Ford Ranger Hurst was driving, Schapson found a black sock in the toolbox in the bed of the truck. Schapson wrote in court documents that she found a glass methamphetamine pipe.

Police had previously conducted controlled purchases from Hurst, according to court documents.

Detective Adam Surface said the drugs were a form of Suboxone, and a pipe was found in his vehicle.

“It’s an ongoing case, and there probably will be more arrests to follow,” he said.

Hurst was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 12:14 a.m.

A Level 6 felony is punishable between six months and two and a half years upon conviction.
