(ABC 6 News) -- Around 2:30 Wednesday afternoon, a Rochester police officer pulled over a vehicle for allegedly running a red light on the 200 block of 2nd St. SW in Rochester. 

According to Lieutenant Mike Sadauskis with the Rochester Police Department, the man driving the vehicle seemed nervous to the officer who pulled him over.

The officer ran the man's license and found that he had a drug sales conviction in 2014. The officer said the man was acting strange and wouldn't answer his questions. 

The officer asked the man to get out of the car, which he did, and says the man admitted to using narcotics within the past few days. The man then allegedly told the officer "you're welcome to search my car." So the officer did. 

In the vehicle, the officer says he found a bag under the passenger seat with a digital scale, 11 grams of methamphetamine, and a small amount of marijuana inside.  

The driver, 29-year-old Cory Meredith of Stewartville, was arrested and is facing charges of 5th-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
