On Wednesday, March 16th, about 4:45 in the afternoon officers with the Plymouth Police Department conducted a traffic stop at Jefferson and Fifth Streets.

The driver of the vehicle was 46-year-old Olan Howard of Alexander Street in Plymouth.  Howard was taken into custody for outstanding felony warrants for dealing in narcotics.

The Probable Cause Affidavits state that Alan Howard sold in total less than 5 grams of Heroin, pure or adulterated, a narcotic drug classified as a Scheduled I narcotic on three separate occasions.  

Plymouth Police transported Olan Howard to the Marshall County Jail and booked him in on three Felony warrants.  He is being held on a $10,000 cash bond.

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
