Drugs, possible stolen SUV confiscated during traffic stop 

HART — “A large amount of controlled substances” and a suspected stolen SUV were confiscated by police during a traffic stop Friday, June 30, shortly after 10:30 a.m. in the 800 block of Griswold Street, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

Oceana County sheriff’s deputies initiated a traffic stop of a 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by 34-year-old Hart man known to have outstanding warrants, said Sheriff Mast. The SUV was suspected to be stolen from Muskegon County, and a Muskegon County deputy reported to the scene to investigate the stolen vehicle, which was transported back to Muskegon County.

The suspect was arrested on the warrants and charged with operating without a driver’s license. He was lodged in the Oceana County Jail. 

The drugs are being sent to the crime lab for analysis.
