(KAIR)--An Atchison man, wanted for failure to appear in court, now faces additional charges following the discovery of what police say was methamphetamine in his possession.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, 50-year-old Dwight Downing, Jr. was arrested late Tuesday morning, in the 1200 block of North 5th Street, taken into custody on a Municipal Court warrant for failure to appear. However, he faces additional charges for possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, which Wilson says was found on Downing’s person as he was being arrested on the warrant.

Following his arrest, Downing was booked into the Atchison County Jail.

His bond is set at $10,000.
