HARRISON (WJRT) (9/13/2017) - A routine traffic stop for a defective exhaust system and an unreadable license plate led police in Clare County to methamphetamine and marijuana in the SUV.
Deputies from the Clare County Sheriff's Department came across the red Pontiac Aztec while on patrol around 8:10 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of East Townline Lake Road and North Clare Avenue, according to a press release issued on Tuesday.
While talking with the two people in the Aztec -- 21-year-old Mandy Houck of Harrison and 33-year-old Timothy Davis of Harrison -- deputies noticed the couple was acting suspicious and observed them trying to hide something. A quick search of where the couple was trying to hide something turned up a plastic baggie containing meth.
A more thorough search of the Aztec revealed more meth, along with marijuana and some marijuana wax.
Houck and Davis both were arrested at the scene and taken to the Clare County Jail.
Houck was arraigned Monday in 80th District Court on charges of meth possession and marijuana possession. Her bond was set at $15,000 and she remained in the jail Tuesday.
Davis was arraigned on Tuesday in 80th District Court on two counts of possession of marijuana or a synthetic equivalent. His bond was set at $15,000, which he posted on Tuesday and was released from jail with a promise to appear for his next court date.
