Police: Franklin man driving unregistered car found with meth, other drugs
MERRIMACK — Police arrested a man on six different charges after being stopped for driving an unregistered vehicle.
Jacob Maynard, 24 of Franklin, was pulled over Aug. 14 when officers noticed the vehicle he was driving on Baboosic Lake Road was unregistered.
During the stop, police discovered that Maynard didn't poses a valid license. The reason for this was a failure to prove financial responsibility to the state's Department of Motor Vehicles.
After Maynard was placed under arrest - but before he was transported - police found methamphetamine, Alprazolam pills and Suboxone hidden in his pocket.
Maynard also had a switchblade knife, which was illegal based on his status as a felon.
Maynard was charged with operating without a valid license, operating without proof of financial responsibility, possession of methamphetamine, two counts of possession of prescription medication, transportation of a controlled drug and being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon.
Maynard's bail was set at $25,000 but lowered to $2,500 cash surety at his arraignment the next day.
A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Aug. 25. at 8 a.m.
