Police in Ohio say a man arrested during a traffic stop had 33 grams of meth stashed in his underwear. Alliance police say two men were arrested Wednesday, a 29-year-old Sebring man and a 45-year-old Diamond man. The Canton Repository reports both men were passengers in a vehicle pulled over for a traffic violation. Police say the drugs the 29-year-old man had hidden in his underwear were intended for sale. Police also say the 45-year-old suspect was wanted on failure to appear in court. Both men remained in custody Thursday and face multiple felony drug charges. Records did not indicate if the driver was cited. (https://goo.gl/AN8bhn)
