A state trooper found suspected marijuana between the shorts and underwear worn by a Norwalk driver during a recent traffic stop.

Darrel D. Keegan, 21, of 142 Benedict Ave., was stopped about 3:40 p.m. Oct. 6 on West Street in Norwalk. Sgt. Tony Myers, of the state Highway Patrol, made the traffic stop because Keegan was driving a vehicle with a loud exhaust.

Myers reported finding the drugs between the suspect's shorts and underwear during a mandated pat-down while Keegan was being arrested on an unrelated warrant.

Keegan was charged with possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license. He also was arrested on a failure to pay fines and costs warrant through Sandusky Municipal Court and released to the Sandusky Police Department.
