Gage County deputies arrested a man for drug possession following a traffic stop Thursday evening.

Shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday, a Gage County sheriff's deputy spotted a vehicle speeding southbound on Highway 77 near Cedar Road. The vehicle was clocked at 72 mph and a traffic stop was conducted on the black Pontiac G6.

The deputy learned during a records check that the driver, 38-year-old Rodney L. Foss, had an active warrant out of Lancaster County. He was arrested on the warrant, and an inventory was taken of the vehicle.

During the search, authorities found a small cylinder container with a white, crystal-like substance in the driver's side door.

A purple container with two glass pipes that had residue was found in a backpack on the front passenger's seat. All three items field tested positive for methamphetamine.

Foss was placed under arrest for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bond was set at $5,000, with a 10 percent deposit. Foss is due back in court on March 6.
