Traffic stop leads to arrests for drugs, parole violation

THREE RIVERS, Mich.—Three Rivers Police conducted a traffic stop on Saturday evening that resulted in the arrest of two people.

On Saturday evening, near Broadway and Fifth Street, officers stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation.

During the stop, officers “became suspicious of the subjects’ activities and identities.”

Officers also had suspicions of drug activity and activated K-9 officer Django, who gave a positive alert of the odor of drugs in the vehicle.

Police then located multiple packages of methamphetamine on two of the occupants.

A male passenger also gave police false information regarding his identity, reports said.

Officers then learned the male passenger was wanted on a parole violation from Mattawan, Michigan.

The driver, a 38-year-old Centreville resident, was taken to the county jail on methamphetamine sale charges.

Police brought the 32-year-old Mattawan man to the jail on charges including methamphetamine sale, supplying false information to police and the parole violation.
