Columbus police arrested two people Saturday afternoon after stopping a suspicious vehicle on Washington Street.
Officers from the city’s community oriented policing unit stopped the vehicle in the 1100 block of Washington Street and talked to a passenger, 32-year-old Derek A. Green, who had his hands concealed underneath him and who had part of an orange pill on his leg, said Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department. After Green got out of the vehicle, officers allegedly found a small bag of methamphetamine and a digital scale.
Green was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine, a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
The driver, 32-year-old Jessica A. Wenger was arrested on a outstanding Bartholomew county warrant.
