Willis man faces charges in Carroll, Floyd and Montgomery counties.
A Willis man wanted by Montgomery County police on drug and grand larceny charges was located and arrested in Carroll County last week.
On March 14, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department received information from Montgomery County that Charlie Wayne Howard was wanted by their agency and was possibly staying at a location on Gator Mountain Road in Carroll, according to a news release.
Members of the Carroll County and Montgomery County sheriffs’ departments went to the cabin and found that the suspect had left.
“Cpl. David Walls was maintaining a watch on one end of Gator Mountain Road and stopped a vehicle, identifying the occupant as the suspect,” the report said. “The suspect admitted to having a container with marijuana in the vehicle. Inside the container were two small bags of marijuana and two bags of a substance believed to be methamphetamine.”
Walls arrested Howard, 28, and charged him with possession of a Schedule I or II drug and driving on a suspended license, along with two Montgomery County charges of grand larceny and Floyd County charges of possession of marijuana and possession of controlled paraphernalia.
Howard was taken to New River Valley Regional Jail, where he is being held without bond.
