A Dearborn, Mo. man faces a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance following a search of his vehicle at the TrexMart in Dearborn, Mo.
Dylan W. Oliver, 23, also faces misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to register a motor vehicle, according to court documents. In late July, a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper ended up searching his vehicle after finding it in the gas station parking lot with no license plate.
When Oliver came back to his vehicle, the trooper asked him if it was his car.
During that engagement, the trooper noticed that Oliver’s pupils were constricted and his body was “very shaky,” according to court documents. He also observed multiple marks on Oliver’s arms commonly associated with individuals using a needle to inject drugs like methamphetamine.
When Oliver entered his vehicle, the trooper also noticed the smell of marijuana, according to a probable cause statement.
The trooper asked Oliver if he had anything illegal in his vehicle, and Oliver insisted he didn’t on multiple occasions until the trooper mentioned the smell of marijuana in the car. Oliver blamed that on a roach that was in the trunk.
After another series of questions, Oliver admitted that he had methamphetamine in his center console, according to the report. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed a glass pipe and a black baggie with a white substance, which preliminary tests showed to be methamphetamine according to the court documents.
