Failure to display front registration on a motor vehicle resulted in a traffic stop in Memphis that ultimately landed a Granger man behind bars on drug charges.
Three charges against Robin D. Spurgeon, 53, were filed in the Scotland County Circuit Court on August 30 and include a class C felony possession of methamphetamine, a class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana and a class A misdemeanor of possession of drug paraphernalia.
A warrant was issued for Spurgeon’s arrest with a $10,000 cash only bond.
The charges stemmed from a July 18th traffic stop in the Shopko parking lot in Memphis. Court documents indicate, Spurgeon’s 1998 Dodge pickup was spotted for the traffic violation by a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper as the vehicle traveled down Highway 136.
During the traffic stop, a consent search of the vehicle uncovered a pill container with more than 100 marijuana seeds, drug paraphernalia and what was believed to be methamphetamine.
