A 35-year-old East Helena man is being accused of having methamphetamine.

Lucas Moore is being charged with possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Moore was being transported from the Lewis and Clark County Justice Court to the detention center when detention officers asked Moore if he needed to remove anything from his pockets. Moore allegedly pulled a silver container from his front pocket and told the detention officer it contained methamphetamine.

The substance found inside the silver container tested a presumptive positive for meth, according to court documents.
