FPD arrest impaired drivers

  The Frankenmuth Police Department worked two drunken driving cases last week.

  Late Friday night, September 5, officers observed a vehicle traveling southbound on Main Street, with the driver operating the car in an erratic manner.

  Officers stopped the driver, a 44-year-old Flint man, near Covered Bridge Lane. During the investigation, officers detected the odor of alcohol and burnt contraband. A search of the vehicle determined the driver had a small amount of alleged contraband stashed in two different places.

  The man was arrested and lodged in the Saginaw County Jail for operating while impaired. The marijuana was sent to the Michigan State Police crime lab for analysis. His vehicle was impounded.

  Early Sunday morning, September 7, officers on patrol observed a motorist driving in an erratic manner, southbound on Main Street near Cass Street. He turned west on Flint Street and was pulled over at Flint and Jefferson streets.

  Further investigation led to the arrest of a 56-year-old Birch Run man for operating while impaired. He was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail and his car was left at the scene.

  Wednesday afternoon, September 3. Tuscola County authorities contacted the FPD, stating they had a 32-year-old Millington woman in custody following a traffic stop. The female had two outstanding warrants from the local police for having no proof of insurance and no license plate. She could not post bond.

  The sheriff’s deputy and Frankenmuth officers met near the Village of Tuscola where she was turned over to the FPD. She was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail.
