Money, meth, guns seized after car search


Details are still scarce, but someone's bound to be in trouble after a motor vehicle search conducted by the Tri-Agency Safe Trails Task Force on Monday.

According to a release from Aaron Wittmer, with the Task Force, the search yielded a substantial stockpile of illegal or questionable items.

"During a search of the vehicle, Task Force Agents recovered 34 grams of methamphetamine, 31 grams of cocaine, 70 various controlled prescription tablets, 4.3 grams of marijuana all items package for sale, " the release says. "Also seized was $2645.00 in U. S. currency, three firearms (two pistols and handle grip shotgun), numerous rounds of ammunition, two expandable police batons (ASP), stun gun, switch blade knife, scales, package material aided in the distribution of dangerous drugs and numerous items of paraphernalia.

"Investigation continuing. "

Because of that last sentence, the Task Force is unable to release much more information.

Wittmer said this morning that the vehicle was seized during a motor vehicle stop in Havre on Saturday.

The vehicle was held at the Havre Police Department until officers could request a warrant to search the car on Monday morning.

While offering no identifying information on who's car it is, Wittmer did say that the owner was not a Havre resident, but did live somewhere else in Montana.

Wittmer said it would probably be months before the case progresses to the point that any more information is released.
