A man awaiting sentencing on child pornography charges was arrested by Twinsburg police on charges of trafficking marijuana and cocaine.
Alan Christian, 24, was arrested in the new drug charges Thursday following a one-month investigation by detectives.
Police say they found small amounts of cocaine and marijuana, along with $460 in cash, when they searched Christian’s car on Ravenna Road during a stop near his Mallard Cove residence on Thursday.
He is being held in the Summit County Jail on three drug trafficking charges, along with cocaine and marijuana possession charges. Police say they also found drug paraphernalia and a .40-caliber pistol during a search of Christian’s home.
Christian was awaiting sentencing after being convicted in July on eight counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a child. He had remained free on a $1,000 bond following the conviction in Summit County Common Pleas Court.
