Traffic Stop Leads to Arrest for Meth Distribution, Having Stolen Gun
A traffic-stop for minor traffic violations lead to an arrest for drug distribution and having a stolen gun.
Just after 10 o’clock Sunday morning, a state police trooper stopped a car on M-55 near Tower Hill Rd. in Houghton Lake for suspected registration and insurance violations.
The trooper approached the vehicle and identified the driver as a 28-year-old Houghton Lake man.
According to police, the stop soon evolved into a roadside investigation, which eventually found 52 grams of meth and a stolen handgun from Indiana.
Evidence allegedly suggested that the man intended to distribute the meth to several northern Michigan communities.
He was arrested for possession of meth with intent to deliver, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of stolen property, and use of a firearm during a felony.
The man was lodged in the Roscommon County Jail, but posted interim bond.
