Fugate Sloan

Two people were arrested Tuesday night after police found drugs and fake urine in their vehicle after a traffic stop, according to a report.

Just before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, police pulled over a grey Saab for a traffic violation in the area of 1900 E. S.R. 120, north of LaGrange. During the stop, police learned the driver – Cody Fugate, 31, of Rome City – had a suspended driver’s license.

As police worked the scene, a LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department K-9 was deployed around the vehicle for a “free air sniff,” police said. The K9 reportedly smelled narcotics in the vehicle, and police searched the car.

Inside the vehicle, police found methamphetamine, and meth-related drug paraphernalia, police said. A bottle of suspected false urine was also found inside the vehicle, according to police.

Fugate was arrested and charged with felony Possession of Methamphetamine, along with misdemeanor counts of Possession of Paraphernalia, Driving While Suspended Prior, and Possession of a Substance used to Interfere with a Drug Screening Test. A passenger in the car – April Slone, 30, South Milford – was arrested on charges of felony Possession of Methamphetamine and misdemeanor Possession of Paraphernalia.
