GRANDVIEW — A traffic stop Friday night in Grandview, done in conjunction with an Indiana State Police enforcement detail on impaired and dangerous drivers in Spencer County, resulted in two arrests.
A trooper on the detail that took place between 8 p.m. CT Friday and 1 a.m. CT Saturday stopped a vehicle with a defective headlight on Main Street in Grandview.
Police said 41-year-old Patricia Sandage was the driver. Her passenger was 44-year-old Forrest Sandage. Both are of Grandview.
During the stop, police said, state police K-9 Drogos alerted to narcotics being present in the vehicle.
Officers said a smoking device and a small amount of methamphetamine was found on Forrest Sandage’s person.
In addition, Patricia Sandage failed field sobriety testing, which sent her to the Perry County Hospital for further evaluation and testing. Patricia Sandage was preliminarily charged with misdemeanor operating while intoxicated and driving while suspended (prior) after methamphetamine and oxycodone were found in her system, according to police.
Forrest Sandage was preliminarily charged with Level 6 felony possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and possession of a lookalike drug.
The overall traffic detail by state police from the Jasper Post produced 38 traffic warnings and 12 citations in addition to the two arrests.
