Beatrice police arrested a man for drug possession following a traffic stop Friday morning.

On Saturday around 2:30 a.m. Beatrice police spotted a vehicle speeding on the area of 19th and Lincoln streets.

Arrest documents state the vehicle was traveling 41 mph in a 35 mph zone and the officer followed the area down Dorsey Street and conducted a traffic stop on Industrial Row.

The driver, 27-year-old Andrew B. Linville, was contacted and told police he was driving to Sterling.

Following the traffic stop, police asked Linville if they could search his vehicle and arrest documents stated he consented to the search.

Inside the vehicle, police found a blue device used for crushing pills. Inside the device was a cellophane wrapper with a small green pill and an orange capsule. The pills were identified as Adderall and Amphetamine.

In the center console of the vehicle was a prescription pill bottle for Lorazepam, that was not prescribed to Linville.

Documents state the pills matched the color and texture of a ground material that was recovered.

Arrest documents state Linville admitted none of the pills were prescribed to him. A secondary search of the vehicle produced a small baggie of a crystal substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Linville was arrested for four counts of possession of a controlled substance.
