A motorcyclist wanted on a Sumter County warrant was arrested with drugs after a traffic stop on U.S. Hwy. 441.
Jason Michael Nuss, 44, of Summerfield, was riding a dark-colored Kawasaki shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday when a deputy noticed it had a suspiciously altered decal on its license plate, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. A computer check revealed the license plate had been assigned to a Honda motorcycle.
During a traffic stop, the deputy found that Nuss was wanted on a Sumter County warrant as well as a Volusia County warrant. He was in possession of substances that tested positive for fentanyl and methamphetamine.
He was arrested on felony drug charges and booked at the Marion County Jail.
