A Bloomington resident was arrested Tuesday after a routine traffic stop led to the discovery of a warrant.
Brandon Walker, 26, was pulled over by officer Michael Baker for speeding, and later arrested on charges of possession and dealing of marijuana, as well as an active warrant for domestic battery, said Sgt. Jeff Canada reading from a police report.
Walker was making suspicious movements in the car as he pulled over, according to the report. Walker was asked to stand next to the car as the officer checked his information. Baker took him into custody upon finding there was an active warrant for Walker’s arrest for domestic battery.
Baker asked Walker if there was anything illegal in the vehicle that he should know about. Walker said there was not.
A search of the vehicle recovered a small amount of green leafy substance in the body of the car which was believed to be marijuana.
In the trunk of the car there was more than 70 grams of similar green leafy substance, as well as two scales with marijuana residue and several small sandwich bags.
Walker was taken into custody and is being charged with dealing and possession of marijuana and a misdemeanor for domestic battery.
