Three arrested for possession of meth

A Grayling woman and two Roscom­mon men were arrested on possession of methamphetamine after deputies of the Roscommon County Sheriff’s Office recovered one gram of meth at a Jan. 2 traffic stop.

The stop occured in the Village of Roscommon at 5th Street and Shelley Street at 8 p.m. after deputies were con­tacted by STING (Strike Team Inves­tigative Narcotics Group) officers and informed of a vehicle of interest. Inside the vehicle were a 23-year-old Grayling woman and 40-year-old Neil Emery of Roscommon. Once the stop was initi­ated, deputies deployed K-9 “Ghost” to search the vehicle. “Ghost” indicated the presence of drugs and two packages of meth were found with one package con­taining .3 grams and the having .7 grams of methamphetamine.

The Grayling woman was charged with possession of methamphetamine, driving without insurance and failing to stop while leaving a private drive and was lodged in the Roscommon County Jail.

Emery was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and smuggling contraband into the jail. Em­ery was then arraigned Jan. 4 in District Court on charges of possession of meth­amphetamine/ ecstasy and furnishing contraband to prisoners. He demanded preliminary examination within 21 days. His bond has been set at $50,000.

When the deputies were preparing to transport Emery to the Roscommon County Jail, he was repeatedly asked if he was in possession of items that would be considered contraband. The man said he was not. Upon arrival at the jail, a cor­rectional deputy found a glass pipe with burnt suspected meth residue and a small pocket torch wrapped in a towel in one of the man’s pockets.

A search warrant, which was issued Jan. 3, was prepared in order to search the shared residence of Emery and a 31-year-old Roscommon man. Dur­ing the residential search, several items related to methamphetamine use were seized. Charges for the 31-year-old Roscommon man included possession of methamphetamine. He also had a war­rant for failure to appear.
