Reminder to behave when passing unmarked squad cars
DRESSER – A man who first followed too closely and then made an unsafe pass of a Polk County Sheriff’s deputy deriving an unmarked squad car later spent jail time after he was found to have narcotics in the car.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, March 4, on Hwy. 35, and when the deputy pulled the vehicle over, he noticed that the plates did not match the truck they were on, and the driver was acting suspiciously.
The driver was identified as Jacob Lewis, 24, St. Paul, Minn., who said he “hated the DMV.”
A narcotics canine officer was brought in after the officer suspected there were narcotics in the car, which turned out to be true.
An eyeglass case contained several packs of cocaine, as did the driver’s wallet.
Lewis was later charged with cocaine possession with intent to deliver, as a second or subsequent offense, and was taken into custody.
He appeared before a judge on March 5, where he set a $2,500 cash bond and a preliminary hearing for March 30 before Judge Daniel Tolan.
