Spencer Drug Arrest

A traffic stop last week in Spencer resulted in the arrest of a West Des Moines man on drug charges.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy on routine patrol pulled over a vehicle after noticing it failed to stop at a stop sign. Upon further investigation it was discovered the driver, Joshua Keithley, didn’t have a valid driver’s license. Keithley was then placed under arrest.

Authorities then found Keithley was in possession of what’s alleged to be a controlled substance. Keithley was charged with driving while barred, possession of a controlled substance marijuana… possession of drug paraphernalia… driving while suspended… failure to obey a stop sign… and no insurance.
