Inoperable plate light leads to arrestJuly 3, 2019
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — An overnight traffic stop in Huntingburg sent a Missouri man to jail early this morning.
A Huntingburg Police Department officer conducted a traffic stop after observing a Toyota passenger car with an inoperable license plate light at First and Washington streets.
The officer determined the driver, Scott W. Poirrier, 37, Festus, Missouri, had an expired driver’s license and an expired license plate on the car. During the stop, the officer observed paraphernalia in the car and, after the department’s K-9 Ester alerted on the passenger-side door, marijuana was also found.
Authorities booked Poirrier into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:52 a.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of paraphernalia. He was also cited for driving while suspended, the expired plate and for no license plate light.
Poirrier posted bond a short time after being booked into the facility.
