Malfunctioning taillight results in drug charges

By From staff reports

A Charleston man stopped for a traffic violation now faces drug charges.

Garin Michael Kincaid, 22, was stopped Friday on MacCorkle Avenue in South Charleston when police noticed he had a malfunctioning taillight, said Cpl. B.D. Humphreys of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department.

Police found he was driving with a revoked operator's license due to a previous offense of aggravated driving under the influence, Humphreys said. While checking the vehicle so that it could be towed, a deputy found a white powdery substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Kincaid was charged with defective equipment, driving while revoked for DUI, and simple possession of meth. Kincaid has been released on personal recognizance bond of $2,500.
