A routine traffic stop has resulted in the arrest of a Rector man on felony drug charges.

Paragould police arrested Tyler Brayden Moslander, 20, on a charge of one count of possession of between two and 10 grams of a Schedule I/II controlled substance (methamphetamine or cocaine), a Class C felony; plus misdemeanor charges.

According to a probable cause affidavit sworn by Detective Cpl. Aaron Gamber of the department’s Street Crimes Unit, the arrest took place Oct. 8 as the result of a traffic stop of a vehicle in which he was a passenger. Officers ordered him to exit the vehicle after he reportedly gave them a false name.

As Moslander exited the vehicle, officers reportedly observed a significant quantity of methamphetamine in plain view in the passenger-side door. The methamphetamine was later determined to weigh 9.1 grams.

And during a search of his person, incident to his arrest, officers reportedly discovered a set of metal knuckles in his left pocket. According to Gamber’s affidavit, a search of Moslander’s backpack also yielded a taser, a torch and two syringes.

Officers took him into custody. He remains in the Greene County Detention Center of a $15,000 bond.
