Columbus Man Arrested on Drug Charges

Bartholomew County Sheriff deputies arrested a local man on drug-related charges after a traffic stop early Thursday morning in the 13000 block of North U.S. 31.

A Sheriff’s deputy made the traffic stop, and during the stop, a K-9 unit alerted to the odor of narcotics coming from inside the vehicle.

The driver, Darrin Bryant of Columbus, exited the vehicle and told the deputy that illegal drugs and a syringe were inside the vehicle.

Bryant was taken to the Bartholomew County Jail and held on multiple drug charges.
