ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Arkansas City Police Department arrested an Arkansas City man May 19 on drug charges after stopping his vehicle in northwest Arkansas City.

Kelly Troy Anderson, 51, was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of methamphetamine, as well as misdemeanor counts of driving with a suspended driver’s license, possession of drug paraphernalia and transporting an open container.

He also was arrested on an Arkansas City Municipal Court warrant for failure to appear.

Anderson was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in lieu of $6,500 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City. He remained in custody at the time of this release.

Police received a report at 5:38 p.m. May 19 that a man with a suspended driver’s license and an active warrant for his arrest was driving in the area of Kansas Avenue and Summit Street in Ark City.

The suspect, later identified as Anderson, was reported driving south on Second Street in a blue Dodge pickup truck. An officer spotted the vehicle southbound in the 1200 block of North Second Street.

The officer pulled Anderson over in the 1000 block of North First Street. He observed an open can of alcohol in one of the vehicle’s cup holders, wrapped in a brown paper bag.

When Anderson exited the vehicle, the officer saw a clear plastic bag containing a crystal-like substance in the driver’s seat. It later field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

Anderson was taken into custody and his vehicle was searched. A glass smoking pipe with burnt residue on it was found inside a potato chip bag in the driver’s-side door compartment.
