A Thornton man was arrested on a drug charge Thursday.
Juan Sanchez, 31, was stopped in a parking lot off Route 92 near Newburg and was found to be driving on a suspended license, according to the Preston County Sheriff’s Department.
A dog gave a positive indication to the presence of narcotics in the vehicle, but deputies were unable to find them, according to court documents. After patting Sanchez down, deputies found a tin can containing 6.5 grams of methamphetamine.
Deputies also found multiple, small bags and two pills.
Sanchez is charged with possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.
