NEW MADRID, MO (KFVS) -

A New Madrid, Missouri man is facing drug charges.

David P. Wood, 31, was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute/deliver.

According to Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter, on Thursday, June 25 a deputy responded to a business outside of Sikeston for a report of Wood allegedly selling drugs.

When the deputy arrived, Sheriff Walter said Wood was leaving in a vehicle. He was stopped by the deputy on Highway 61.

Sheriff Walter said Wood gave permission for the deputy to search his vehicle and person.

During the search, deputies say a small case was found near Wood's back waistline. They say inside the case there were three small plastic bags.

According to the sheriff's office, two bags had a white, crystal-like substance, which tested positive for methamphetamine. They say the other bag contained three yellow oval pills, which were identified as Acetaminophen and Oxycodone/Hydrochloride, a controlled substance.

Deputies say Wood had $882 in his wallet and another $1,900 was found hidden in the dash of the vehicle he was driving.

Wood was arrested and taken to the Scott County Jail. His bond was set at $10,000 cash only.
