Man busted again for cocaine

A Cedar Springs man arrested by the Kent Area Narcotics Enforcement Team in February is back in jail on drug-related charges.

Jason Wayne Hoover, 30, was arrested on Tuesday, March 23, after police pulled over the vehicle he was riding in and found a crack pipe in his sock.

According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, Officer Paul Feutz pulled the car over on Linda Street about 10:54 p.m. He soon discovered that the driver, Anthony Brian Cornwell, 31, of Comstock Park, was operating with an expired license. After removing Cornwell from the vehicle, Officer Feutz saw a crack pipe in the interior of the car. Cornwell was arrested and will face charges in 63rd District Court for DWLS 1st offense and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Knowing that the passenger, Hoover, was out on bond for a drug conviction and for possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle, Officer Feutz asked him to step from the vehicle. Hoover was secured in the back seat of the patrol vehicle while Officer Feutz waited for a K-9 (drug dog) from the Grand Rapids Police Department.

Officer Patrick Baker explained that his K-9 hit on the passenger’s seat where Jason Hoover was sitting. At the same time, Officer Sawyer from Rockford PD was moving Jason Hoover into his patrol vehicle and discovered a crack pipe in the sock of Jason Hoover and a partially torn baggie from one of his pants pockets.

After Hoover was lodged into the Kent County Correctional Facility, Officer Feutz searched the car, according to patrol procedure, and discovered someone had placed two small rocks of crack cocaine beneath the rear seat.

Hoover was arraigned on March 24 in 63rd District Court, and is still in the Kent County Jail on one count of possession or sale of drug paraphernalia, one count of possession of cocaine less than 25 grams, one count of Violation of Controlled Substance Act-2nd offense notice double penalty, and habitual offender-4th offense notice. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on April 6.
