Man found with drugs, cash in car

A Washington County man pleaded not guilty to felony drug possession at his arraignment hearing in the Athens County Municipal Court on Tuesday.

Jeremy D. Cutshaw, 41, pleaded not guilty to possession of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony.

Athens County Sheriff Deputy John Morris arrested Cutshaw after he was pulled over for a minor traffic violation in Millfield on Saturday. Morris searched Cutshaw’s vehicle and found 794 hits of LSD, according to court documents.

According to a post on Sheriff Pat Kelly’s Facebook page, eight ounces of moonshine, marijuana, a bag of white powder thought to be ketamine and $2,600 in cash was also found in Cutshaw’s vehicle.

The vehicle Cutshaw was using when arrested is registered in his mother’s name and was seized by the Athens County Sheriff’s Office, said Judy Cutshaw, Jeremy’s mother, at a hearing before Judge William Grimm on Tuesday afternoon.

Grimm scheduled a hearing for his mother to get temporary ownership of the car from law enforcement.

Cutshaw is currently being held on $25,000 bond at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.

He could be sentenced to a maximum of eight years in prison and a maximum fine of $15,000 if convicted at a trial, according to the Ohio Revised Code.

Cutshaw is due back in court Jan. 29 for a preliminary hearing.
