MADISON — A Madison man faces drug charges after, police say, he was found to be in illegal possession of multiple drugs on July 1.

Timothy Wayne Green, 25, was charged with possession of marijuana, alprozolam, fentanyl, methamphetamine, Suboxone and a hallucinogenic substance, according to a criminal complaint prepared by Boone County Sheriff’s Captain J.A. Weagel.

Weagel wrote in the report that he saw the accused sitting in the driver’s seat of a car on Jarrell’s Branch Road; he approached the car and smelled a strong odor of marijuana.

Weagel wrote that the accused’s girlfriend began yelling that he had a gun and that there were drugs in the car.

The officer asked the accused to exit the car, and, during a frisk, he found a plastic baggy with 33 ½ white tablets partially hanging out of the accused’s right front pocket, according to the report. Weagel wrote that the accused told him it was Xanax, and that it wasn’t his. Weagel also reported seeing a bag in the front seat with a significant amount of marijuana weighing approximately one ounce, a bag with a crystal-like substance inside, and a wallet that appeared to have Suboxone wrappers sticking out of it.

The officer reported that he searched the wallet and found Suboxone strips, blotter paper and a receipt rolled up with a fine, white powder consistent with fentanyl or heroin.

Green was arrested, and, as of press time, was held in the Southwestern Regional Jail on a $80,000 property/surety bond.
