Officer Enyart stopped a vehicle about 5:30 at South Plum Street and Lake Avenue and found the driver to be operating on a suspended driver’s license.
During the investigation he checked a passenger in the vehicle looking for a valid driver for the vehicle.
Officer Enyart located 33 year old Christopher Hurley in the back seat. It was discovered that he had two active warrants for his arrest, one through Marshall County and one from Saint Joseph County. The officer also found a clear baggy on Mr. Hurley. The baggy contained a white crystal substance which tested positive for meth.
Christopher Hurley was booked into the County Jail for the Contempt of Court warrant and the new charge of Possession of Methamphetamine and held on a $3,200 cash bond.

They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
