Paris police said Dakota Wayne Boyett, 23, of Detroit, is facing a new drug charge after he was stopped Thursday evening in the 3800 block of Lamar Avenue.
Police said an officer approaching the car smelled what they believed was marijuana, which sparked a search of the vehicle. The officer found what they believed was marijuana and methampetamine in the vehicle, and police said Boyett claimed the suspected methamphetamine.
The officer also learned Boyett had an oustanding felony warrant charging him with possession of a controlled substance.
A second person in the vehicle is charged with possession of marijuana and outstanding traffic warrants. Their identity was not released by police.
