TROY- A Kalispell man who already has drug charges pending in Flathead County is now facing more charges stemming from a Troy meth bust.
The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says 38-year-old Todd Franklin was dealing drugs at the Ranch Motel in Troy.
He was pulled over for traffic stop where deputies obtained a search warrant for his car and the motel room.
While they found no drugs in the vehicle, they discovered a gram of methamphetamine, marijuana, needles and syringes in his motel room.
Franklin was taken into custody and his bond is set at $25,000. Lincoln County authorities said they are seeing a surge in meth use and meth labs in recent month.
April held the largest number of meth busts for the year.
