MARION, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - A man is facing several charges after authorities say they found drugs in his car during a traffic stop in southeast South Dakota.

The suspect ran a stop sign in Marion early Saturday morning, according to the Turner County Sheriff’s Office. A deputy pulled the car over.

During the traffic stop, the deputy discovered the suspect had outstanding stolen vehicle and drug warrants in Minnehaha County and Woodbury County, Iowa. The deputy searched the vehicle and found a black bag with a pipe and white residue inside.

The bag was brought back to the sheriff’s office. Authorities say deputies found a baggie inside containing a white crystal substance. Deputies tested the substance, which came back positive for methamphetamine and fentanyl. Fentanyl is a potent drug that can be lethal if even touched.

The suspect’s name has not been released.
