An Osceola County man was taken to jail after he was found in a ditch with drugs in his vehicle.
At around 2:10 a.m. on Nov. 15, Michigan State Police say a trooper with the Cadillac Post stopped to investigate a vehicle in the ditch on 180th Avenue near 21 Mile in Sherman Township.
Inside the car was a 38-year-old Cedar Springs man who said he was on the way to see his girlfriend when he stopped to urinate.
He got his vehicle stuck, the driver said, while he was trying to back up onto the roadway.
While speaking with the man, the trooper said he noticed a glass pipe with white residue sticking out of the man’s jacket pocket.
The trooper then searched the driver and discovered a small plastic wrapper containing methamphetamine inside a cigarette package in his sweater pocket, police said.
The man was taken into custody and lodged in the Osceola County Jail, pending an arraignment on expected charges.
