Investigators with the Decatur Police Department’s organized crime unit say they developed James Daniel Sapp Jr., 37, as a suspected meth distributor during an investigation over the past few months. Police say Sapp distributed meth on two separate occasions within city limits during this time.

Police obtained two felony warrants against Sapp for charges of distribution of a controlled substance. They caught up to him Monday during a traffic stop. Police said they pulled a vehicle over near U.S. 31 in front of Lynn Layton Chevrolet and found Sapp was a passenger inside.

Officers said Sapp put up a brief struggle when they tried to take him into custody. After detaining him, he was subsequently charged with resisting arrest and served with three active failure to appear warrants.

Sapp may not be getting bond at the Morgan County Jail. Court records indicate he was already on bond after an Aug. 20 arrest at a local motel. He was charged with possession with intention of distributing crystal meth. Sapp’s girlfriend and an Ohio fugitive were also arrested there.

Police said they are attempting to have Sapp’s previous bond revoked.
