Man arrested after traffic stop

GREENSBURG – A traffic stop led to the arrest of a local man on felony drug charges and prompted police searches of residences in Greensburg and Oldenburg for further evidence Wednesday.

According to court documents obtained Thursday by the Daily News, Daniel J. Holzer, 34, has been arrested and charged with dealing in methamphetamine, a class A felony, and possession of marijuana, a class C felony.

A press release from the Greensburg Police Department (GPD) states Holzer possessed crystal methamphetamine, a quantity of marijuana and approximately $1,000 in cash at the time of his arrest.

A report from the Indiana State Police states Holzer was stopped by a Greensburg Police Officer on Broadway Street for driving left of center Wednesday afternoon. Holzer’s nervous demeanor, according to the report, prompted an ISP Trooper and his K9 to check the vehicle. The dog alerted authorities to the presence of drugs in the automobile.

During a subsequent search, officers seized a hand-rolled marijuana cigarette, two baggies containing a substance later identified as methamphetamine, the previously mentioned cash, two cell phones and receipts for pre-paid money cards.

The arrest led authorities to obtain search warrants for the Greensburg residence occupied by Holzer in the 900 block of South Parkside Drive as well as the home of an acquaintance in the 3000 block of Pearl Street in Oldenburg.

Detectives and the GPD’s Tactical Arrest and Containment Team searched Holzer’s residence and located methamphetamine, crystal methamphetamine, a handgun and evidence of drug use. The home also contained scales authorities believe were used to weigh the illicit substances which were then packaged and sold. Krieger, the GPD’s K9 officer, helped in the execution of the search warrant.

Meanwhile, ISP troopers and detectives collaborated with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department for a search of the Oldenburg residence. Authorities located “numerous dosage units” of MDMA, a drug commonly known as “ecstasy,” as well as evidence of intravenous drug use, according to the press release.
