Richmond police arrested a man Tuesday morning for excessive windshield/window tinting, buying/possessing drug paraphernalia, first-degree controlled substance trafficking (2 grams or more of methamphetamine), second-degree controlled substance possession (drug unspecified) and failure to produce an insurance card after an officer noticed him drive by with window tint on the entire front windshield.
The officer also noticed excessive tint on other windows of the vehicle, according to a citation. The officer pulled over Richard Clark, 30, Henry Drive, Berea, and a police dog and their officer were called to the scene.
Clark gave officers an expired insurance card, the citation states. Police then asked if there were any weapons in the vehicle, and Clark said there weren't.
Police asked Clark to exit the vehicle and asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle, to which he responded that his ex-girlfriend "'had all kinds of dudes' in the vehicle while he was in jail," the citation states.
The police dog indicated the presence of drugs in the area of the driver's side door, and police searched the vehicle, the citation states. Officers found a loaded 9 mm pistol, a loaded .380 pistol and a digital scale with residue.
Officers then searched Clark and found $980 before Clark became agitated, stating the officer searching him was trying to touch his genitals. Clark then pointed across the street to where children were playing at a playground.
Police then took Clark to the police department and let police continue searching him, the citation states. Officers found a baggie with suspected methamphetamine and pills, later identified as suboxone. In total, 7 grams of methamphetamine was confiscated.
Clark was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Wednesday afternoon, according to online jail records.
