WARNER ROBINS -- A traffic stop early Thursday led to the arrest of a Warner Robins man on drug and other charges.

Warner Robins police Officer James Dubry stopped Ralph Christopher Russau, 28, at 1:40 a.m. at the intersection of North Davis Drive and Bargain Road, a news release stated.

A check of Russau’s driver’s license found he had an outstanding warrant for conspiracy to traffic cocaine from Taylor County and that he was driving on a suspended licence, according to the release.

Officer James Bish and Rasty, a police drug dog, were dispatched to the traffic stop. The vehicle was searched after the dog alerted to drugs. An undisclosed amount of cocaine and less than an ounce of marijuana was found, the release stated.

Russau was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, a felony, and the misdemeanor offenses of possession of marijuana, failure to maintain lane, driving with a suspended license and defective equipment, Houston County jail records show. Russau was being held at the jail without bond.
