A Helena man suspected of speeding and driving with a revoked license was allegedly found in possession of methamphetamine.

Wayne Scott Harris, 53, is being charged with possession of dangerous drugs, speeding, and driving while license suspended.

According to court documents, a sheriff’s deputy saw Harris’ vehicle going more than 15 miles per hour over the speed limit on Montana Avenue. The deputy initiated a stop and found Harris with a female passenger who was having difficulty breathing and required oxygen at her residence, according to court documents.

The deputy followed Harris to the female passenger’s home, where Harris helped the woman get her oxygen. Later, the deputy asked Harris to produce his license, registration and proof of insurance. Harris did not have his license, according to court documents.

The deputy then learned that Harris' license had been suspended and discovered two warrants for his arrest. 

He was arrested and taken to jail. 

When Harris was searched at the jail, a detention officer found a clear baggy containing white residue. Harris admitted and a drug test confirmed it was methamphetamine, court documents state.
