Zanesville Police arrest a Morgan County man on felony drug abuse, while his daughter sits in his car.

The man is 28-year-old Stewart Olney of McConnelsville.

Lt. Bill Shaw says the man was seen near Mead Street and Ridge Avenue around 12:30 Friday morning engaging in suspicious behavior that appeared to be a drug transaction.

A traffic stop was made and drugs and drug paraphernalia were discovered in his vehicle. Shaw says additional charges of child endangering may be pending because the man had his 7-year-old daughter in the vehicle with him at the time.
