Johnathan W. Adams, 28, plead not guilty in the Clark County Municipal Court on Friday.

Adams was stopped by a Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputy on South Yellow Springs St. in Springfield Twp. at about 11 a.m. on Aug. 3 for having a suspended license. The deputy noticed the driver moving around a lot and counting money with his pockets turned inside out, a report said. He was also extremely nervous and overly talkative, it said.

K-9 officer Gordon performed a sniff in the area and began jumping at the passenger side door. Deputies searched the vehicle and found a folded piece of paper on the seat with a powdered substance believed to be carfentanil.

Adams told the officer he only smokes weed, the report said. He was cited with driving under suspension, while other charges were pending following lab results.

Adams was arrested by the deputies on Thursday, according to jail records. Bond was set at $10,000.
