Christian Dearmond, 24, of Springfield, was arrested on traffic warrants in November, according to a police affidavit, but during his arrest they say they found a digital scale, cash and some marijuana inside a car in which he was a passenger, according to a Springfield Police Department affidavit.

A police dog search indicated more drugs were in the area, but the affidavit said Dearmond told police “he was smarter than” telling them where to find the drugs.

“Mr. Dearmond was then escorted into the Clark County Jail book-in area,” the affidavit says. “At this time Deputy R. Rollins conducted a search of Mr. Dearmond’s person. During the search Deputy Rollins was shaking Mr. Dearmond’s pants, at which point a plastic bag with an off white substance that is believed to be heroin fell out of Mr. Dearmond’s left pant leg.”

Officers collected the alleged drugs as evidence, the affidavit says.

“Deputy Rollins continued his search at which time another plastic bag fell out of Mr. Dearmond’s pants leg,” the affidavit says.

The baggie had a white substance mixed with torn up lottery tickets inside, the affidavit said, and officers collected that as evidence.

“At this time Deputy Rollins escorted Mr. Dearmond to the shower room so he could change him out…,” according to the affidavit. “During Mr. Dearmond changing into the jail uniform he removed his left sock. When he did so a plastic bag with three blue pills inside fell out of his sock,” the affidavit states.

Dearmond was indicted on two felony charges of trafficking, two counts of possession of drugs, tampering with evidence and illegal conveyance of drugs of abuse onto ground of detention facility. He pleaded not guilty to the counts and a next court date has not been scheduled, according to court records.
