A routine traffic stop Saturday night turned into much more for an Elizabethtown man who now faces multiple drug charges.
Dietrick Allen Osborne, 55, was stopped by Elizabethtown Police when the license plate on his 2001 black Ford Ranger truck wasn’t illuminated.
When an EPD officer asked Osborne if he could search the vehicle, Osborne agreed, according to a citation.
With the help of the K-9 unit, a small wallet was located underneath the center of the backseat. In the wallet, according to the citation, was four small plastic bags of methamphetamine.
Also found in the vehicle was a plastic straw with residue as well as four white pills of Tizanidine, a pain pill. Also found on Osborne was $365 in cash bundled in several separate bundles, according to the citation.
Osborne is charged with trafficking in meth, a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison; possession of drug paraphernalia, Class A misdemeanor and illegal possession of a legend drug, Class B misdemeanor.
Osborne is lodged at the Hardin County Detention Center on a $50,000 full cash bond.
