On February 1, 2014, a traffic stop resulted in a Felony drug arrest. In the early morning hours, a vehicle traveling north on Hwy 65 was stopped due to an equipment violation.  The Sheriff’s Deputy conducted a brief search and discovered a pill bottle that contained suspected methamphetamine on the driver.  The driver was taken into custody and transported to the Van Buren County Detention Center where a more thorough search revealed more suspected methamphetamine.
