A traffic stop made by a Holmes County Sheriff’s Deputy in northern Holmes County leads to suspected methamphetamine.
Deputy Clint Smith was patrolling in northern Holmes County on State Road 2 when he saw a Ford pick-up fail to stop at a stop sign.
Deputy Smith conducted a traffic stop and a subsequent computer check revealed the tag on the Ford pick-up to be registered to a Dodge.
Deputy Smith made contact with the driver who identified himself as Nathan Eugene Biddle (43) of Bonifay.
Biddle exited the vehicle and was observed by the Deputy dropping an object from the area of his waist.
This item was recovered by the Deputy and was determined to contain suspected methamphetamine.
Syringes commonly used to ingest controlled substances such as methamphetamine were also located in the vehicle.
Biddle was arrested and transported to the Holmes County Jail were his bond was set at $6,750 for possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while license suspended or revoked and attaching a tag not assigned.
