DALLAS CITY, Ill. — A Fort Madison, Iowa, man is in the Hancock County Jail on a drug charge after a traffic stop.

A deputy with the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department conducted a traffic stop on a 2005 blue Chevrolet sedan at 6:15 p.m. March 31 at the intersection of Third and Maple in Dallas City. The driver, Jeremiah D. Gray, 44, was found to have a suspended driver’s license and a warrant for his arrest from Henderson County.
