A traffic stop by Indiana State Police Troopers Jesse Reason and Blake Sarver led to the arrest of Jason Werry, 38, from Howard City, Michigan.
He was taken to the Fulton County Jail to face criminal charges for possession of methamphetamine, dealing methamphetamine, dealing a legend drug, dealing marijuana, possession of a narcotic drug, possession of marijuana, theft from a motor vehicle, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
It was back on Sunday, Jan. 16, troopers initiated a traffic stop, on a 2001 Buick passenger car, on U.S 31 near State Road 25 for allegedly traveling 72 miles per hour in a posted 60 miles per hour zone.
During the traffic stop, Werry was identified as the driver. While the troopers were speaking with him, they noticed indicators of criminal activity.
In a search of the Buick, officers allegedly found a handgun, over four pounds of marijuana, approximately 19 grams of meth, prescription medication, drug paraphernalia, a stolen license plate, and a stolen laptop computer.
The troopers were able to use identifying information from the laptop computer to track down its owner. He drove to Peru, to pick up the computer which had been reported stolen from Kent County, Michigan.
