    Police say a man was arrested for trafficking cocaine after a routine traffic stop Saturday morning.

    According to Massachusetts State Police, a trooper stopped a 2001 Volkswagen Passat for speeding, among other violations, on Route 10 north at the intersection of Main Street in Northfield.

    The trooper discovered that the driver, Ryan Spath, 21, of Richmond, New Hampshire, was unlicensed and had an active default warrant for failing to appear in court after personal recognizance.

    Spath was then placed under arrest, police said.

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    The trooper searched the car and found 28.3 grams of cocaine and $6,708 cash inside a backpack.

    Spath was booked at the Shelburne Falls Barracks. He faces charges including trafficking cocaine, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, speeding and marked lanes violation.

    Spath was released on $3,500 bail. He will be arraigned in Greenfield District Court on Monday, police said.

    It is unclear if he has an attorney.
