Additional Information

The arrest comes after a St. Clair County deputy was dispatched to a suspicious car blocking the roadway on Highway 82 near Tiffin. The deputy arrived on scene and tried to wake the driver, Carpenter, who was asleep in the driver’s seat.

Carpenter finally woke up and the deputy advised him why he was there. After speaking with Carpenter, the deputy asked for consent to search the vehicle. Carpenter refused. The deputy called for a K9 unit to his location. The K9 did an exterior sniff test of the vehicle and did alert to the presence of narcotics. During the search of the vehicle, a plastic straw and a plastic bag of white crystal like substance was located in the vehicle.
