Traffic Stop Results In Drug-Related Arrests; More





Jasper (NNDC) – What initially appeared to be a routine traffic stop to notify a driver for a non-working headlight, ended with the driver and a passenger both in custody.

Jasper police say shortly after Midnight this (Thursday) morning, a patrol officer pulled over a car which its right headlight was out.

JPD’s K-9 unit was also called to the scene to assist and the K-9 indicated the presence of narcotics in the vehicle.

A subsequent search of the vehicle resulted in officers finding a glass pipe used to smoke methamphetamine, along with a small container with methamphetamine inside it and pills.

The car was driven by 42-year old James Myers of Princeton.

Police say a female passenger in the car initially gave officers a false name and date of birth during the traffic stop.

Officers later identified the woman as 42-year old Lisa Martin of Greenwood who was wanted in Daviess County for two felony charges.

Police say Myers is charged with Possession of Paraphernalia and Possession of a Controlled Substance.   Meanwhile, Martin was with Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Paraphernalia and False Identification.
