Traffic stop may result in drug charges
A traffic stop Wednesday afternoon turned into the arrest of a man allegedly carrying a significant amount of methamphetamine, officials said today.
A Rochester police officer on patrol about 2:55 p.m. recognized a man who he knew was driving without a drivers license, and stopped him in the 100 block of First Street Northeast, said Capt. John Sherwin.
The driver had about an ounce of meth in his pocket, the report says; a further search of the car turned up about two more ounces in the trunk. The man was arrested and is being held for court, pending formal charges.
The Post-Bulletin typically doesn't identify suspects until they've been charged.
