A Madison man faces methamphetamine charges after police said they found drugs in his residence while serving a search warrant.
Police served the warrant Tuesday on Jason D. Cutshall, 36, for a probation violation. Upon entering his residence at 316 1/2 W. Main St., police discovered a small bag of methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia in plain view, according to the probable cause affidavit.
Officers applied for and received a search warrant and found additional paraphernalia related to drug use, the affidavit said.
Detective Lt. Jonathon Simpson, the lead officer on the case, checked two cell phones found at the scene and located contacts he said were involved in drug activity.
Simpson said in the affidavit he had received several complaints about Cutshall and drug use.
Cutshall was taken to the Jefferson County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine, a Class B felony; maintaining a common nuisance, a Class D felony; and possession of marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor.
Senior Patrolman Joe Baker and Patrolman Dylan Barnes assisted Simpson at the scene.
