Traffic Stop Leads To Arrest And Seizure Of Drugs (Photo) - 11/17/23

On Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at about 10:47 AM, Lincoln City Police conducted a traffic stop in the 4600 block of SE Hwy 101 on a silver 2000 Honda Accord for an observed traffic violation. The officer made contact with the driver, who was identified by Oregon Identification Card as 45-year-old Adam Clayton Davis of Salem, Oregon. During the contact, the officer determined that Davis’ Oregon driver’s license was suspended, he had no insurance, and there was an active misdemeanor warrant for his arrest issued out of the Dallas Municipal Court for Failing To Appear on a Traffic Offense. The warrant was confirmed and Davis was taken into custody. 

An inventory of the vehicle prior to towing was conducted, at which time the officer located a plastic baggy containing a white crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine. The vehicle was subsequently seized under a seizure warrant and transported back to the police department. An additional search warrant was obtained to search the vehicle, which yielded a large amount of a white crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine, along with other drug paraphernalia that was seized. A preliminary test of the white crystal substance indicated a presumptive positive indication for methamphetamine. 

Davis was transported to the Lincoln County Jail and lodged on the misdemeanor warrant, as well as the following charges: Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine with Commercial Drug Factors, and Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine. Davis was also cited for driving with a suspended license and driving uninsured. 

This case is a great example of how proactive police work and traffic enforcement efforts help to reduce criminal activity in our community.
