SPD finds small amount of meth during traffic stop

SHERIDAN — Sheridan police removed some drugs from the streets Wednesday night when a routine traffic stop turned into a small methamphetamine bust.

Michael Jack, 41, of Sheridan, was stopped on Coffeen Avenue because a patrol officer noticed a headlight on Jack’s vehicle was out.

“During the stop, the officer noticed some cues and clues that led him to think there was illegal activity going on,” Police Lt. Chris Dahmke said. “(Jack) consented to a search of his vehicle, and the officer located a small quantity of methamphetamine.”

Dahmke said the officer found one to two grams of methamphetamine individually wrapped in smaller bundles, which suggests to law enforcement a possible intention to sell the drug.

Jack, who denied knowledge that the drugs were in his vehicle or how they might have gotten there, was also cited for not having liability insurance, and will appear in circuit court on all charges Nov. 18.
