A Blountstown man was arrested Saturday night for driving under the influence and possession of listed chemicals.
Brian Jordan Young, 21, was charged in the case.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Cpl. Eddie Dalton conducted a traffic stop on Young just after 11 p.m. Young reportedly pulled out of the Cherokee Motel parking lot onto SR 20, traveled across the center line into the turning lane, then pulled back toward the white line. When it happened a second time, Cpl. Dalton pulled him over and noted Young was not wearing a seatbelt.
Cpl. Dalton smelled alcohol and Young said he had consumed two beers. Dep. John Scheetz arrived to assist and administered a field sobriety test. Young was found to be under the influence of alcohol and was charged with DUI.
K-9 Gina sniffed the exterior of the vehicle and alerted to the odor of narcotics. Cpl. Dalton told Young he was aware he had purchased two boxes of pseudoephedrine from an area pharmacy. Young admitted he bought the pills, but said he had already sold them and didn’t know the name of the person who bought the pills. Cpl. Dalton asked if he knew what the person buying the pills planned to do with them and Young replied, “What do you think?” Young stated he doesn’t use meth, but sells pseudoephedrine pills to make money.
A search of Young’s vehicle turned up the two boxes of pseudoepedrine. Cpl. Dalton asked if the pills were his and Young hung his head, stared at the ground and replied, “You got me.”
Young was booked into the Calhoun County Jail and remained in custody at press time.
