An Owensboro man is arrested on meth charges after an early morning traffic stop.

The Daviess County Sheriff's Department says it happened Monday morning around 3:30.  Deputies say they stopped a pick up truck in the 7400 of Highway 2830 for a tail light being out.

Authorities say the driver, 50-year-old Terry Belcher, consented to a search of his vehicle. During the search deputies say they found a duffle bag in the truck containing several items used in the making of meth, along with suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Belcher was arrested on multiple charges including manufacturing meth, possession of marijuana, and no tail lamps.
