A Columbus man is facing drug charges after he was found with a flashlight in the backyard of a Lafayette Avenue home Saturday night.

Columbus police were called to the home at about 9:20 p.m. on a report of suspicious activity and discovered 47-year-old Timothy K. David in the yard. He allegedly provided a fake name to police, but officers confirmed his identity and he was wanted on two outstanding warrants. A search revealed marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia hidden in his clothing.

He was arrested on the warrants, as well as false informing and possession charges for the drugs and paraphernalia.
