Traffic stop leads to arrest of two Princeton men.

On March 17, 2017, at 11:17 p.m. Deputies stopped a Blue 1993 Chevy S10 on State Road 64 near County Road 725 E for failing to dim their headlights to oncoming traffic and failing to maintain its lane of travel. Upon approaching the vehicle the driver was identified as 24 year old Cody Stewart of Princeton. While speaking with Mr. Stewart deputies detected the odor of burnt Marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. At that point a roadside investigation was conducted that resulted in Mr. Stewart being transported to the Gibson County Jail by Deputy Ben Kiesel. Upon arriving at the jail Mr. Stewart was charged with Carrying a Handgun without a License, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Methamphetamines, Possession of a Syringe, and Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated. He remains in custody on a $3,000 bond.

Deputy U.B. Smith arrested 22 year old Christopher Minnick of Princeton on Possession of Marijuana and Possession of a Synthetic Drug charges. He has since posted a $750 bond.

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