RAY COUNTY, Mo. — A man from Excelsior Springs who was accused of possession of drugs during a traffic stop in Ray County Thursday has had formal charges filed against him.

Daniel R. Endsley

According to a probable cause statement filed in a Ray County courtroom, Daniel R. Endsley, 33, was pulled over at about 9:15 a.m. Thursday at Highway 10 and Route Y in Ray County for failure to signal and traveling across the centerline of the roadway.

The officer noticed that the suspect was allegedly breathing heavily and had red eyes.

Upon conducting a record check, it was discovered that Endsley was wanted on a Clay County warrant for possession of a controlled substance.

He admitted to an officer that he had a “meth pipe” in his vehicle after he initially denied allegations of illegal contraband in his automobile.

Endsley then reportedly admitted to the arresting officer that he had smoked methamphetamine out of the pipe the evening prior.

Law enforcement seized the pipe, which contained a white crystal substance that later tested positively as meth.

Endlsey is now charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to drive on the correct half of the road as well as failure to signal.

He is currently in custody at the Ray County Jail being held on a $10,000 bond with a 10% surety allowed.
