A Toyota Camry passenger's nervous behavior led to the discovery of several prescription drugs and a small amount of methamphetamine near Fourth Avenue, according to a Columbus Police report.

Allen Dunn, 37, faced possession of methamphetamine, Schedule II and Schedule II drugs during a Thursday morning Recorder's Court hearing. He was also charged with possession of drug related objects.

An officer told the court he stopped the Toyota Camry Wednesday afternoon near the intersection of 38th Street and Fourth Avenue after he noticed the rear passenger, Dunn, was not wearing a seat belt. After asking the occupants of the car for ID, he noticed Dunn's hands were visibly shaking and he refused to make eye contact.

On searching the vehicle, police found 0.1 grams of meth inside a pill bottle. A hydrocodone pill, which Dunn had a prescription for, was also inside the bottle, along with a Lortab pill he did not have a prescription for, according to a report.

The officer told the court that he also found a razor blade, a cut up straw and a cut up pill inside the bottle. He did not specify the type of pill found.

Dunn was issued a warning citation for the seat belt.

Judge Michael Cielinski set Dunn's bond at $10,250.
