Selina — A man in Selina was arrested Saturday after a short trail for methamphetamine possession, according to the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office.
Shortly after 3:30 pm on Saturday, Deputy Spencer Heinle conducted a traffic stop on Morton Street after observing “suspicious activity” in a nearby parking lot, according to a media release. Aaron P. Chapman, 35, was stopped from driving a gray e-bike.
According to the release, Heinl’s K-9 partner, Hex, sniffed around the bike and showed an odor of drugs. Chapman fled the scene and was pursued by his agent.
According to the release, Chapman was seen tossing the bag while running and was later retrieved and preliminarily tested to be presumptive positive for methamphetamine. Deputies caught Chapman and took him into custody.
Chapman is currently being held at the Mercer County Adult Detention Center for possession of methamphetamine, a fifth-degree felony. He is unrestrained and restrained.
The case will be forwarded to the Mercer County Attorney’s Office for review for additional claims.
