Michigan man caught with meth uses fake name, arrested anyway because that person had active warrants
CLAM LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A Michigan man who was caught with methamphetamine gave police a fake name, but the person whose name he used had active felony warrants, so he was arrested anyway, according to officials. A 29-year-old Cadillac woman was in the driver’s seat and a 30-year-old Lawton man was in the front passenger seat, police said. The fake name the man used belonged to someone who had an active warrant out for his arrest, so they took the Lawton man into custody, officials said. AdDuring the arrest, troopers found about 27 grams of meth inside the man’s pants, according to police.
