The investigation led to the seizure of alleged used methamphetamine drug paraphernalia and another item or other items. The subject received a summons for the drug paraphernalia, and information is being submitted to the prosecuting attorney.

In another incident, Cox reports additional investigation at a vehicle traffic stop made by a deputy for an equipment violation led to the seizure from a purse of several alleged controlled prescription medications in a bag commonly used for distribution.
