A Quincy man was arrested on drug charges Wednesday after Adams County Sheriff's Department deputies checked on a parked car at Knapheide Road and Pumphouse Road.

Jewel Ray Waldrop, 37, of 848 State, was arrested on suspicion of unlawful delivery of methamphetamine and unlawful delivery of methamphetamine precursors. He was lodged in the Adams County Jail.

The Sheriff's Department reported that deputies patrolling the area noticed two people sitting in the parked car. Upon checking the vehicle, deputies learned that the passenger, Waldrop, was wanted on a criminal trespass warrant.

While Waldrop was being searched, deputies noticed a small black bag filled with a substance later determined to be methamphetamine, police said.
