Routine traffic stop results in arrest

Monday, January 9, 2006

A traffic stop by the Indiana State Police around 11:30 p.m. Sunday led to the arrest of a Bloomington man wanted for an outstanding warrant for three drug related charges in Clay County.

Shane Robertson, 27, of Bloomington, Ind., initially refused to stop when Trooper Matt Ames tried to pull him over for speeding, but finally stopped in the area of S.R. 46 and C.R. 200 E.

Ames determined that Robertson was wanted on an outstanding Clay County arrest warrant filed in December for Failure to Appear in court for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Dealing in Methamphetamine. While attempting to handcuff Robertson, he resisted Ames during the arrest.

During a search of Robertson's vehicle, officers discovered a small amount of Methamphetamine, precursors used in the manufacture of Methamphetamine and anhydrous ammonia in an unapproved container.

Arrested for the outstanding warrant, Robertson was also charged by ISP with Resisting Law Enforcement, a Class A Misdemeanor; Possession of Anhydrous Ammonia in an Unapproved Container, a Class D Felony; Possession of a Controlled Substance, a Class D Felony; Possession of Precursors, a Class D Felony and Manufacturing Methamphetamine, A Class B Felony.

Robertson is awaiting arraignment in the Clay County Jail without bond.
