A Lebanon man was arrested in Camdenton on New Year’s Eve following a traffic stop for not having an operational license plate light. During the stop, the driver, identified as Albert Leo Clark Junior was found to have two active warrants for his arrest. Clark reportedly denied consent to search his vehicle, so the Deputy called in a K-9 unit and the dog allegedly alerted on the vehicle. The deputy then performed a probable cause search of the vehicle and located a spoon with white residue, hypodermic needles, several small plastic baggies, and a scale. The residue found in the vehicle tested positive for methamphetamine.
