Search Of Park In Marshall Turns Up Meth, Leads To Arrest
A suspicious van at a park in Marshall yesterday led to a meth-related arrest.
Just after midnight Sunday, the Marshall Police Department noticed an unoccupied van parked in S. Ketchum Park, just north of the Calhoun County Fairgrounds. As authorities approached the vehicle, a suspect entered the van and drove off.
Officers were able to conduct a traffic stop on the van a short time later, and arrested the 33-year-old driver. The van was searched, and inside officers found methamphetamine, meth making components and other paraphernalia.
A search of the park where the vehicle was found also turned up drugs.
The suspect was lodged at the Calhoun County Jail on charges of possession of meth with intent to deliver, driving on a suspended license, and two outstanding warrants.
A traffic stop on second vehicle believed to be involved was conducted by the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department, and a search for another person suspected to be involved in the incident was conducted by the MPD in conjunction with the CCSD. However, this search was unsuccessful.
