(BEDFORD) – Bedford Police arrested a Holton man after their department received a 911 call reporting an erratic driver in a semi with a trailer on State Road 37 near 16th Street, Tuesday morning.
Officers located the vehicle near 16th and I streets and followed the driver east on 16th Street.
“After the officer witnessed his erratic driving, the officer attempted to pull over the driver near US 50 and Stars Boulevard,” says Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore.
Officers indentified the driver as 33-year-old Eric Wall.
The officer continued to follow Wall, attempting to get him to stop. Wall finally pulled over at US 50 East and Deer Creek Estates.
While the officer was talking to Wall, the dispatcher confirmed Wall was driving on a suspended driver’s license.
Officers asked for consent to search the semi, but Wall declined.
“Officers contacted one of our K-9 units, and they arrived a short time later. The K-9 gave a positive alert on the vehicle. During a search of the semi, officers found a clear plastic container with a white powder inside. The white powder tested positive for Heroin and Fentanyl. Wall was arrested and transported to the station then jail.”
Wall was arrested on charges of possession of cocaine or a narcotic drug, resisting arrest, and driving while his driver’s license was suspended. He was also cited for false registration, unsafe lane movement, driving left of center, and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
