JASPER — An early morning traffic stop Sunday in Jasper resulted in a Morgan County man going to jail.
A Jasper Police Department officer checked the license plate on a 2002 Toyota Sienna traveling northbound on Mannheim Road at 4:30 a.m. and discovered the plate was expired and registered to a different minivan.
A traffic stop was conducted in the parking lot of a business in the 4000 block of Mannheim Road, at which time the officer allegedly confirmed the plates were unlawfully placed on the vehicle and the Sienna and the Toyota did not have current insurance.
Police also allege articles known to be used with drug consumption were located inside the van while it was being inventoried prior to a police-action tow.
The driver and two passengers occupying the vehicle were asked if they were in possession of any illegal narcotics or contraband, police said, and one of the passengers, Zachary R. Frame, 27, Bloomington, admitted to possessing two hypodermic syringes and a glass pipe used to smoke marijuana.
Authorities booked Frame into the Dubois County Security Center at 6:50 a.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of illegal possession of a hypodermic syringe and a preliminary misdemeanor count of paraphernalia possession.
The Sienna’s driver was cited for the fictitious plate and for not having insurance before being released.
A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker towed the Toyota.
