Police arrested the owner of an Atwood car dealership Friday after finding numerous pills and a small amount of marijuana at the business, according to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department.

Officers searched Atwood Auto Sales at 205 Main St. and discovered the drugs about 3 p.m., the sheriff’s department said.
