A traffic stop and second search in Cleveland led to $51,985 in methamphetamine, marijuana and pills, according to law enforcement.

According to information from the Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office, Cleveland Police officers conducted a traffic stop Thursday and arrested Mullinax, in addition to seizing 1 pound of meth and $1,700 in cash.
