An officer with the Plymouth Police Department observed a speeding vehicle traveling west on Jefferson Street Sunday morning at about 12:30. The vehicle abruptly turned north onto Beerenbrook Street. 

The officer saw that same vehicle accelerate to a high speed while driving east on Monroe Street approaching Fifth Street, so he conducted a traffic stop. 

The driver of the vehicle was identified as 26-year-old Elmer Osorta-Ordonez, Thayer Street in Plymouth.

The officer’s investigation led to Osorta-Ordonez being taken into custody and transported to the Marshall County Jail on multiple criminal charges.

Elmer Osorta-Ordonez was booked into the Marshall County Jail for Operator Never Licensed, Operating While Intoxicated, Operating While Intoxicated-Endangering, and Operating While Intoxicated over .15.  He was in jail for almost 9 hours before posting bond and being released.
