A Madison man faces a drug charge after jail officials located methamphetamine in his pocket following his arrest on an active warrant earlier this week.

Michael T. Nolan, 26, faces a Level 6 felony count of possession of methamphetamine. Prosecutors filed the charge Friday morning in Jefferson Superior Court.

Officers responded to a residence on Horizon Drive around 8:30 p.m. on Thursday in an attempt to locate Nolan, who had an active warrant for his arrest. Police found Nolan at the home, placed him under arrest and transported him to the Jefferson County Jail.

Jail officials located several small plastic bags in Nolan’s pocket during the booking process and provided the bags to police officers. Four of the nine bags contained a white in color residue.

The residue from one bag later field tested positive for methamphetamine, the probable cause affidavit stated.

Nolan is being held without bond until an initial hearing scheduled for Monday in Jefferson Superior Court.
