Entry Description

Clinton County-Yesterday at approximately 4:43 p.m. on I-65 southbound near the 151 mile marker (that is seven miles south of the Frankfort exit), a trooper stopped a subject for a traffic violation and two pounds of methamphetamine was discovered in the vehicle.

Trooper Ryan Winters with the Indiana State Police was working traffic on I-65 in Clinton County when he stopped a white 2006 Ford pickup truck for a traffic violation. The driver, Alejandro Martinez, 31 years old from Chicago and a female passenger were found to not have a valid driver’s license. Upon further investigation, Trooper Winters became suspicious of possible drug activity and did a free air search of the vehicle with his K-9 partner, Bosco. Bosco alerted on the vehicle. Assisted by Trooper Ben Rector and his K-9 partner Nico, a search of the vehicle was made and approximately two pounds of what appeared to be methamphetamine was found in a child booster seat that was inside the truck.

Martinez was arrested and booked into the Clinton County Jail on Dealing in Methamphetamine a Class A Felony, Possession of Methamphetamine a Class C Felony and Never Receiving an Operator’s License a Class C Misdemeanor. No bond has been set. The female passenger was released with no charges filed. The investigation is continuing.

No traffic stop is considered routine to a police officer. You never know what is going on inside the vehicle when the officer approaches. It could be mom taking the kids to a soccer game or a person wanted on felony warrants who said he would never be taken alive. Every stop is unique and requires the officer’s full attention while doing his or her job. Be sure and give the officer on a traffic stop a wide berth when you see the red and blue lights flashing in front of you. Slow down and move into the other lane as required by law. You never know when you might need an officer and you will want motorists to slow down and move over while he or she is helping you out along the side of the roadway.
