An Andalusia man was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance on Thursday after Troy police officers recovered methamphetamine from a bag on his motorcycle.



According to The Troy Messenger, Christopher Lee Baker, 27, of Andalusia, was being held on a $7,500 bond for the possession charge and an additional $1,500 bond for other misdemeanor charges.

Troy Police Chief Jimmy Ennis told The Messenger that officers approached Baker in front of a business on South Brundidge Street in Troy on Thursday.

“Officers observed the individual acting suspiciously,” Ennis said. “As a result of identifying him, they realized he had outstanding warrants out for his arrest.”

Baker was also arrested on two failure to appear charges for traffic violations as well as an alias writ of arrest for a failure to complete court-sanctioned activities.

The warrants were for not attending or not completing or attending his drug and alcohol referral classes, the TPD said.

The small black bag on Baker’s motorcycle was attached to the handlebars with a cigarette pack and Baker’s wallet. The wallet contained two small bags of meth in the crystalized form, or ICE, according to the report.

Baker has already bonded out of the Pike County Jail.
