LAWRENCEBURG, IN (FOX19) -

Four Ohio men are behind bars after police found pot in their car during a traffic stop on Sunday.

At about 1 a.m., an Indiana State Police trooper was patrolling U.S. 50 eastbound in Lawrenceburg following behind a Chevy Monte Carlo when he noticed the driver was not wearing a seatbelt.

The trooper stopped the vehicle near Florence Drive in Lawrenceburg and identified the driver as Luther A. Ashcraft, 26, of Okeana. 

As Ashcraft was looking through his glove compartment for the vehicle registration, the trooper noticed a baggie in the glove compartment which he asked Ashcraft to hand him.  The baggie contained what appeared to be a small amount of marijuana. 

Also during the course of the traffic stop, the trooper noticed other containers within the vehicle that contained what he suspected to be marijuana and he also could smell the odor of burnt marijuana from within the vehicle and about Ashcraft's person. 

Ashcraft and three other occupants were asked to exit the vehicle and a subsequent search revealed LSD, Adderall, "synthetic" urine, and articles of paraphernalia. 

Ashcraft is charged with Possession of LSD, Possession of Schedule II Narcotic, Maintaining a Common Nuisance (all Class D Felonies), Possession of Marijuana-Less than 30 grams, Possession of Paraphernalia (both Class A Misdemeanors), and Possession of a Substance used to Interfere with Drug Screening-Synthetic Urine (Class B Misdemeanor).

Dane T. Bacovin, 26, of Okeana, is charged with Possession of Marijuana-Less than 30 grams, Class A Misdemeanor, Visiting a Common Nuisance, Class B Misdemeanor. Daniel P. Becker, 28, and Justin S. Bovard, 30, also of Okeana, are both charged with Visiting a Common Nuisance, Class B Misdemeanor.

All four individuals were transported to the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
