A Clarence man was charged with a class C felony of possession of a controlled substance after a November 25 traffic stop on Highway 61.

According to a statement from Pike County Sheriff Stephen Korte, sheriff deputies pulled Jimmy Langley, age 51, over on a traffic stop and smelled marijuana emitting from his vehicle.

The officers then searched Langley’s vehicle and found marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and prescription medication. The medication was identified as Diazepam and deemed a controlled substance. Judge David Ash issued a warrant for Langley’s arrest and set a $10,000 cash-only bond.

As of November 26, Langley was being held at the Pike County jail in lieu of cash bond.
