A vehicle driven by a Bradford man was stopped on a traffic violation last Wednesday, March 20, with the subject being found in possession of illegal drugs and paraphernalia.
Independence County Sheriff’s Deputy Adam McGilton, who made the traffic stop because the vehicle was missing a driver’s side headlamp and left front fender, also recognized the vehicle as one involved in leaving the scene of an accident on Thida Road in February, according to court documents.
During a search, McGilton found a glass smoking pipe with white powder residue inside and a plastic baggie containing a white crystalline substance in the subject’s pants pocket.
A search of the vehicle turned up a white pill, later identified as hydrocodone.
The subject, Anthony Imhoof, 28, was taken into custody and charged with three drug-related felonies and a traffic misdemeanor.
A bond was set at $5,000.
