WILSON — Police say a traffic stop led officers to arrest a Bailey man wanted on 17 outstanding arrest warrants.

A Wilson police officer was conducting a security check of a business in the 4100 block of Raleigh Road Parkway at 3:55 a.m. Monday when police say the officer noticed a car with a broken taillight leaving a business. The officer conducted a traffic stop and spoke to the driver, who police say used an alias before officers identified him as 35-year-old Joshua S. Ballard.

Police conducted a warrant check for Ballard after confirming his identity and found he had 17 outstanding warrants from several counties, according to Capt. Steve Stroud.

Stroud said Ballard was wanted on a felony breaking and entering charge in Charlotte.

“Officers located drug paraphernalia and (a) possible 2 grams of crystal methamphetamine,” Stroud said.

Ballard received a $20,000 secured bond on the drug charges, $50,000 unsecured bond for some warrants, $365 cash bond for a warrant from another county and a $165,000 secured bond on the remainder of his charges, according to Stroud.
