      Columbia man busted with cocaine

      Columbia police arrested Justin Floyd after they found cocaine and marijuana in the car he was riding in.

      A Columbia man was arrested after police found cocaine in the car he was riding in. At about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, an officer stopped a silver Chrysler which was headed south on College Avenue for a traffic violation. The officer stopped the car at the intersection of University Avenue and Mathews Street. The officer walked up to the car and could see the passenger, Justin Floyd, 23, had a plastic bag on his lap with green leafy substance believed to be marijuana. When the driver, Kelly Kullman, rolled down her window the officer could smell a strong odor of marijuana. That's when the officer had Floyd and Kullman get out of the car. During a search of the car, officers found a small glasses case between the passenger seat and the passenger door with five small bags of white powdery substance which tested positive for cocaine. Officers also found a Miller Light beer case which had several smoking pipes, smoking glasses, and more marijuana inside. Officers also located Ziplock bags and scales inside the car. Officers arrested Floyd for distribution/delivery/manufacture/produce controlled substance for the marijuana and cocaine, use or possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor warrant for failure to appear, and a misdemeanor warrant for traffic offense. Kullman was arrested for possession of controlled substance and released.
