BEATRICE – Two males were arrested for alleged drug violations in separate Beatrice Police traffic stops, over the weekend.

One happened Saturday night just after seven, when an officer received a complaint of a black-colored Pontiac with no license plates, not maintaining its lane.

An officer stopped the driver near 8th and Nichols Avenue. The officer noticed an odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.  A subsequent search of the vehicle recovered a pipe from a glass case and a micro baggie with a crystalline substance.  A white substance in the case field tested as suspected methamphetamine.

37-year-old Gregory Louis II was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and of drug paraphernalia.

Sunday night at around nine p.m., an officer stopped a pickup for a driver side brake lamp not illuminating. The truck was stopped at 19th and Court.  Another officer observed three butane troch lighters on the passenger seat of the vehicle.

Police requested a K-9 at the scene and while waiting for arrival of the dog, the driver consented to a search.  Police recovered a glass smoking device with a burned white substance, and a syringe wedged between the back seat and armrest on the driver’s side.  The pipe field tested for the presence of methamphetamine.

Police arrested 57-year-old Quint Mick, of Wymore, for possession of a controlled substance and of drug paraphernalia.
