(TELL CITY) - A Tell City man was caught in the town’s junior high school parking lot with methamphetamine.

State Police Jasper say they stopped 55-year-old John Leclere of Tell City for a traffic violation in the Tell City Junior High parking lot, and during the stop, the officer brought his K-9 officer around the vehicle who alerted to the presence of drugs.

Afterwards, the trooper searched the driver and vehicle and turned up a couple glass smoking devices and a piece of foil all with burnt methamphetamine residue, and a small baggie containing a white powder that later tested positive for meth.

Leclere was then taken to Perry County jail and charged with possession of meth and paraphernalia.
