A Danville man was taken into custody in Pulaski after a traffic stop turned up a cache of drugs in his vehicle.

Geovonia D. Coleman, 37, was arrested by the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office after his vehicle was stopped on Nelson Valley Road.

He was charged with Trafficking in a Controlled Substance (Carfentanil or Fentanyl Derivatives), first-degree Trafficking in a Controlled Substance (more than two grams of Methamphetamine), first-degree Possession of a Controlled Substance (drug unspecified), second-degree Trafficking in a Controlled Substance (less than 10 doses of an unspecified Schedule 3 drug), Possession of Marijuana and Receiving Stolen Property (Firearm).
