A man from Steuben County was arrested by an Indiana State Police Trooper from the Toll Road Post late Tuesday night on numerous preliminary drug related charges following a traffic stop near Howe.

According to ISP Trooper Zarek Finley, last night at approximately 10:30 p.m. he was investigating a suspicious vehicle on County Road 700 N near Howe. After stopping the vehicle and during his interaction with the driver, 28 year old Matthew Wayne Friedel, Finley smelled the odor of raw marijuana coming from the passenger compartment of the vehicle.

A subsequent investigation revealed that Friedel was in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, two drug syringes, a pipe used for smoking meth and more than $1,800.00 in U.S. currency.

Friedel was also wanted on an arrest warrant out of Allen County for dealing meth.

He was taken into custody without incident and incarcerated in the LaGrange County Jail on preliminary charges not related to the arrest warrant that include Dealing Meth, Possession of Meth, Possession of Marijuana, Unlawful, Possession of a Syringe, and Possession of Paraphernalia.
