A Prairie City man was arrested on multiple drug charges Thursday.
John Day police officers arrested Thomas Pfeifer, 47, and charged him with possession of methamphetamine, delivery of methamphetamine, manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of oxycodone in John Day Thursday night.
Pfeifer is currently being held in the Grant County Jail. Bail is set at $70,000.
Pfeifer was arrested after John Day Police Chief Richard Gray received a call from dispatch about a suspicious subject passed out in a tan sedan in Len’s Drug parking lot at approximately 9:35 p.m.
Gray woke Pfeifer and commenced an investigation that led to Pfeifer handing over roughly 13 grams of meth and oxycodone for which he did not have a prescription, as well as scales and plastic bags. Gray described 13 grams as “a large amount for a person to have.” Pfeifer was compliant during the arrest.
Pfeifer was charged with delivery and manufacture based on the items found in the car and statements he made, Gray said.
Pfeifer is currently serving three years of probation, stemming from a burglary conviction in 2015, according to court documents.
