A Unionville man is facing several charges following a drug-related arrest in Memphis on July 19th.
Albert J. Suitt, Jr., 58, has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) as well as misdemeanor charges of operating a motor vehicle without a valid license, failure to register a motor vehicle and no insurance.
He was taken into custody after a Scotland County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a report of a vehicle blocking traffic on North Adams Street in Memphis.
The officer responded to the complaint and discovered a 1998 Jeep Cherokee parked sideways in the 600 block of the city street, blocking part of the roadway. The officer made contact with the driver, Suitt, who did not have a driver’s license. It was also learned that he had two outstanding warrants from Putnam County. During the traffic stop it was also determined that the vehicle was displaying the license plates of a separate vehicle, a 1999 Dodge Caravan.
Suitt was wanted for a failure to appear warrant issued in April in Putnam County where he was facing charges of DWI as a chronic offender.
Suitt was transported to the Scotland County jail where he is being held on a $10,000 cash only bond. He was arraigned on July 21st in the Scotland County Court with a preliminary hearing set for August 8th.
