A visit to a parole officer lands a Bono man behind bars after deputies say meth was found inside a walking cane.

According to an incident report, on Tuesday, the Greene County Sheriff’s Department was notified about the drugs by Probation and Parole Officer Rick Barker.

In the report, Barker stated five small plastic bags of meth were found inside a walking cane during a search of 44-year-old Scott Harold Callahan’s truck.

Four of the small plastic bags were marked in black ink with the amount 3.9 and an another was marked with an "X," according to the report.

Sheriff David Carter, his deputies, and Probation and Parole Officers Rick Barker and Jared Soles then conducted a search at Callahan’s home in which nothing was found.
