When police found a car that was reported stolen, they also found meth.
Anthony R. Mc Millin, 36, Clintonville, is charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, taking a vehicle without consent, resisting an officer and felony bail jumping.
On Wednesday, Sept. 27, a woman called the Clintonville police and reported that when she woke up at 6:30 a.m. she discovered her car key and her 2005 blue Ford Taurus were missing.
She said a friend told her Mc Millin took the car around 4:30 a.m.
Sgt. Matthew Wright found the car parked at the Kwik Trip, then he made contact with Mc Millin.
According to the criminal complaint, Mc Millin denied stealing the car, but said he may have kept it too long.
As he was being handcuffed, Mc Millin took off running and Wright pursued, the complaint says. Mc Millin did not stop until he was tased.
Officer Anthony Arietta arrived at the scene to assist. He reported finding a small black case on the ground. Inside the case were syringes and small plastic bags with residue that tested positive for meth.
Officer also found meth on Mc Millin’s person after they took him to the Clintonville police station.
