TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Crawfordsville man arrested while allegedly carrying illicit drugs in his vehicle was charged on Friday.

Court documents say that on Oct. 8, 42-year-old Chedric D. Wright was stopped by police while driving on State Road 38 East in Lafayette.

After he noticed the odor of burnt marijuana, the officer searched the vehicle which turned up several different kinds of drugs.

Items found in the search included marijuana, heroin, methamphetamine, MDMA, a set of scales, as well as Adderall, Vyvanse and an assortment of other prescription drugs.
