Driver and passenger arrested for drug charges after traffic stop

Clay County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two men Tuesday night after a traffic stop during which a K-9 discovered one of the men had thrown drug-related items from the vehicle before it pulled over for authorities.

According to a report, deputies tried to stop a vehicle being driven by Jon Scott Dallman, 58, but Dallman tried to evade them.

Dallman eventually stopped near 4240 310th Avenue and deputies took him into custody on arrest warrants at about 7:40 p.m.

He was charged with driving while his license was revoked, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamine and operation without an interlock device.

Deputies also arrested Michael James Jones, 52, a passenger in the vehicle, on an outstanding warrant.

While investigating, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit found several drug related items that had been thrown from the vehicle before Dallman pulled over, according to the report.

The report stated that, with the help of the K-9 unit, Jones was charged with possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both men were held in jail to appear before the magistrate.
