(THREE RIVERS) – A man and a woman are being held in the St. Joseph County Jail on drug charges.
Three Rivers Police made a traffic stop Friday on South Main Street at Mechanic Street on a minor violation. Officers realized the vehicle was involved in an ongoing drug investigation in Three Rivers.
K-9 Officer Django was called into search for narcotics, and he showed officers that there were drugs in the vehicle. Information obtained during the traffic stop led officers to a local hotel.
A search warrant was obtained and Officer Django was brought to the hotel to search a room and again alerted to the the odor of drugs in a specific area of the suite. Officers searched and found a substantial amount of crystal methamphetamine packaged for sale along with the proceeds of drug sales.
A 28 year old man and a 27 year old woman were arrested on charges of selling meth and maintaining a drug house.
