Two Arrested For Drugs After Late Night Stop
On Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 at about 03:20 am, A Pine County Deputy observed a vehicle described as a Buick Century north bound on interstate 35 approaching County Road 14. The Deputy watched the vehicle swerve from its lane and back. The vehicle exited the interstate at County Road 42 and the Deputy initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle continued east bound and finally stopped in the parking lot of the Beroun Marathon gas station.
In a press release we learned that upon stopping the vehicle, a Pine County Deputy found the driver and passenger extremely nervous and talkative. When asked for his driver’s license, the Deputy said the driver stated that he did not have one. At this time the driver was asked to step out of the vehicle and was placed in the patrol car. Records checks showed that the driver’s license was revoked.
A second Deputy arrived and while speaking with the female passenger noticed what appeared to be a drug pipe on the floor of the vehicle. The female was removed from the vehicle and placed in a squad car.
Deputies searched the vehicle and found approximately two and a half ounces of methamphetamine, one ounce of marijuana, two digital scales, multiple drug pipes and hundreds of small plastic bags.
The driver was identified as Jordan Michael Armour of Elk River, and he was charged with two counts of First Degree possession of drugs. Armour’s bail has been set at $100,000 without conditions and $50,000 with conditions. The passenger was identified as Paula Marie Chaney of Sioux Falls SD, and she has also been charged with two counts of First Degree possession of drugs. Chaney’s bail has been set at $25,000 with conditions and $10,000 without conditions.
