Man arrested on drug charges after traffic crash

A traffic crash led to the sheriff's office arresting a Crystal Lake man on drug charges.

Lazarus D. Larkin, 23, was involved in a traffic crash at Route 31 and Gracy Road in Prairie Grove. He was headed north on Route 31 about 3 a.m. Saturday when he struck a southbound vehicle, the McHenry County Sheriff's office said in a news release. Larkin's vehicle ended up in a ditch.

Police said Larkin had a warrant for failure to appear on a previous marijuana charge. Deputies also found Larkin was in possession of marijuana smoking pipes, a scale and a grinder, the news release said.

Larkin was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, improper lane usage and operation of an uninsured motor vehicle.

On Monday, he was being held on $6,780 bond at the McHenry County Jail.
