Entry Description

Miami County – Last night, a traffic stop by Indiana State Trooper Daniel Prus led to the arrest of David Lowe 27, Rochester, IN. Lowe was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail to face felony charges for driving a vehicle after having been deemed a habitual traffic violator, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of chemical drug precursors. He also faces a misdemeanor count for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Yesterday evening, at approximately 4:05 p.m., Indiana State Trooper Daniel Prus initiated a traffic stop on a Ford Taurus which was traveling northbound on U.S. 31 near Miami County Road 800 North. Prus was stopping the Taurus for allegedly having window tinting that was too dark and following another vehicle too closely. After Prus activated the emergency lighting on his marked police vehicle, he observed the driver, later identified as David Lowe, purportedly switch seats with a female passenger. After the Ford came to a stop, further investigation revealed that Lowe was allegedly driving after having been deemed a habitual traffic violator.

During the course of the traffic stop, Prus noticed indicators that criminal activity might be afoot. A subsequent search of the Ford revealed chemical drug precursors and drug paraphernalia. Troopers also purportedly found two small plastic bags, containing a white powdery substance, on the ground in the immediate area next to Lowe. The powdery substance field tested positive for methamphetamine.

Lowe was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail. The female passenger was issued a citation for littering. She was alleged to have thrown something out the window when Trooper Prus was stopping the Ford. She claimed it was a cigarette.

Trooper Prus was assisted during the traffic stop by Indiana State Police Lt. Jeremy Kelly and Trooper Luke Bowyer.

Citizens are encouraged to call their local law enforcement agencies with any information about the possession, distribution, or manufacturing of methamphetamine. Information can also be reported anonymously by calling the Indiana State Police Methamphetamine Tip Line at 1-800-453-4756.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law
