October 25th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

Sheriff’s officials in Adams County said Monday, a traffic interdiction program conducted on Highway 34 Sunday afternoon, led to the arrest of a Corning man.  Officials say as a vehicle driven by Denise Carder, of Nodaway, was stopped and  searched by a Ringgold County k-9 unit,  information was received indicating a controlled substance could be found at the residence of Carder and 40-year old Martin Lee Grace, who authorities say lives in Corning. 

Carder gave authorities permission to search her residence, during which a controlled substance was in fact, located. Martin Grace, who was already being detained in Adams County while an OWI investigation was underway, was placed under arrest for Possession of a Controlled Substance. He faces charges of Possession of Controlled Substance on Certain Real Property, and two-counts of Child Endangerment.

The case remains under investigation.
