WARSAW — A Warsaw man was recently arrested after police say a traffic stop led to a discovery of 28 grams of cocaine.
Daniel Granados Gonzalez, 19, 1202 Wooster Road, No. 51, Warsaw, is being charged with dealing in cocaine more than 10 grams, a level 2 felony; possession of cocaine, a level 3 felony; and possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor.
On Feb. 21, an officer with the Warsaw Police Department observed a silver Volkswagen exceeding the posted speed limit on North Detroit Street. A traffic stop was conducted and the driver was identified as Gonzalez. According to the officer, Gonzalez appeared “extremely scared and more nervous than a normal person.”
The officer discovered that Gonzalez’s driver’s license was suspended prior. A K9 partner was used to conduct an outer air search of the vehicle and made a positive alert.
According to the probable cause affidavit, the officer searched the vehicle and discovered an envelope that contained 28.1 grams of cocaine and two digital scales that contained marijuana residue. Also discovered inside the vehicle were empty plastic bags and numerous plastic containers that the officer recognized as being used to package illegal drugs.
Gonzalez was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on Feb. 21, with a $15,250 surety and cash bond.
