Brent Kennard, 29, was arraigned on misdemeanor drug charges stemming from a traffic stop on South Chestnut Street near Race Street.
He was subsequently searched and found with five stamp bags and one empty bag of suspected heroin.
District Judge Sue Haggerty arraigned Kennard on charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. He was placed in the Butler County Prison on $5,000 bail in the case.
It should be said this case was from May, and the police were now just getting arounf to charging the guy, and even though he has been in no trouble since this incident, the state felt the need to place him into the Butler County Prison
