Fostoria man arrested on warrants, meth found in his vehicle

A Fostoria man who had three active arrest warrants now faces meth possession and numerous other charges following a traffic stop Sunday.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office stated in a news release that Crayton Heinrichs, 40, was initially arrested following a traffic stop in which he was found to have three active warrants out for his arrest.

Those warrants were for probation violation, contempt of court and failing to appear to serve a mandatory seven-day mittimus. He was also charged with no insurance, operating a non-registered vehicle and fraudulent use of registration.

Heinrichs was transported to the Clay County Jail.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office K9 unit was later called in to help, which resulted in a warrant being granted to search for Heinrich’s vehicle.

According to the news release, a substance believed to be methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were found during the search.

Heinrichs was then charged with possession of methamphetamine, second offense, an aggravated misdemeanor; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a simple misdemeanor.

Heinrichs was held to appear before a magistrate.
