Dyer County Sheriff's Sgt. Danny Petrie performed a traffic stop on Dec. 8 after observing a traffic violation of the driver of a green car. The driver, Rose, did not have his license after stating to Petrie that it was suspended. Petrie searched Rose and his passenger, Robertson, and then the vehicle after gaining consent from Rose.
A search of the vehicle revealed a backpack containing numerous items used in the manufacturing of meth, including a gas generator and lithium batteries.
Petrie also found a bag of alleged meth and charged Robertson with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance. The two were arrested and taken to the Dyer County Jail where Robertson has remained on a $15,000 bond and Rose on an $8,000 bond.
