What Providence Police described as “excessive window tinting” led to a traffic stop that landed a Providence man in jail on meth charges.

Police Chief Todd Jones stated that he noticed a vehicle with dark window tinting traveling west on Cedar Street. As he was observing the vehicle, it failed to signal before making a turn.

Jones said he began to pursue the vehicle, at which point it turned into a residential driveway, at which point the driver exited the vehicle and moved as if to enter the house. It was then that police say he tossed something into the grass nearby.

Officers detained Christopher Belt, 32, and a search of the vehicle was performed, turning up a baggie of suspected marijuana and a baggie of suspected meth.

Belt was placed under arrest and transported to the Webster County Detention Center on charges of possession of meth, possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence.
