Routine traffic stop leads to big meth bust

A simple traffic stop on Monday night led to arrests for Methamphetamine manufacturing and dealing in Sturgeon Bay.  According to a Sturgeon Bay Police social media post Tuesday, a police officer stopped a vehicle on the west side shortly before 8 pm Monday for a minor traffic infraction for having a non-working brake light.  After officers discovered a large number of drugs during a search of the vehicle, the driver, a Sturgeon Bay resident, was arrested for several felonies.  A high quantity of meth, marijuana, scales, cash, and paraphernalia were confiscated.   While that arrest was being made, two other Sturgeon Bay Patrol officers followed up on the east side residence of the vehicle's owner.  The individual was uncooperative and was taken into custody.  After searching the apartment, officers eventually found meth, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and smoking devices.  Both suspects will be facing multiple charges including Delivery/Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine,  Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession of Marijuana.
