(LOOGOOTEE) - A Shoals man was arrested Sunday afternoon after police found drugs.

According to an Indiana State Police report, at 12:45 p.m. Senior Trooper Jarrod Lents was patrolling U.S. 50 in Loogootee when he noticed a black Nissan Maxima stopped at a stop light. The trooper noticed that neither the driver nor the front seat passenger were wearing a seatbelt.

After pulling over the vehicle, Trooper Lents saw a 3-year-old boy in the back seat who was not secured in a car seat.

Trooper Lents began speaking with the driver, 29-year-old Robert A. Osborne of Shoals, and learned Osborne did not have his driver's license with him. That was because Osborne had his driving privileges suspended indefinitely and had prior convictions for driving while his driver's license was suspended.

Osborne was then arrested.

Troopers searched the Nissan and found a pill bottle containing Hydrocodone and Clonazepam on the rear floorboard in front of Osborne's seven year old daughter. Lents also found marijuana and drug paraphernalia under the driver's seat.

Osborne was arrested and taken to the Martin County Jail on felony charges of maintaining a common nuisance, two counts of neglect of a dependent, misdemeanor counts of possession of a schedule II and schedule IV controlled substance, driving while his driver's license was suspended with a prior conviction, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The children were released to the front seat passenger.

Arresting at the scene were Senior Trooper Jarrod Lents and Loogootee Police Officer Glen Akles.
