A traffic stop by the Forest Lake Police Department at 12:16 p.m. on Thursday at W. Broadway Avenue and I-35 resulted in two arrests for drugs.

According to Sgt. Mark Richert, a random check of the license plate by an officer revealed a warrant out for the arrest of the vehicle’s owner. Five and a half grams of methamphetamine was found in the search, he said, noting both the driver and passenger were arrested.

The pair of men – from Woodbury and Little Canada – are being held on felony 3rd degree possession of a controlled substance, Richert said.

“The two parties are in custody at the Washington County jail,” he added.
