Traffic stop leads to arrest of Columbus residents

Two Columbus residents were arrested Tuesday night after a traffic stop. Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, says that just before midnight, Officer Lukas Nibarger stopped a vehicle near Second Street and Jackson Street and spoke to the driver, 38-year-old Tara S. Stark, and her passenger, 21-year-old Zachary A. Moore.

Harris says that officers determined that Moore had a warrant for his arrest out of Jackson County and he was placed under arrest. During a search of Stark’s vehicle, police reported finding a syringe in the center console. That led to Stark’s arrest on a preliminary charge of Possession of a Legend Drug Injection Device.
