STEUBEN COUNTY – A traffic stop on the Toll Road in Steuben County resulted in a drug bust Tuesday.

Just after midnight Trooper Benjamin Walker stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation on the westbound of the Indiana Toll Road, near the 151 mile marker, in Steuben County.

While talking to the driver, 37-year-old Ryan Bartlett, of Paw Paw, MI, Walker smelled the odor of raw marijuana. A subsequent search of the Chevrolet revealed more than 1 ½ pounds of suspected raw marijuana, several vape pen cartridges containing suspected THC oil, and suspected marijuana wax.

Bartlett was arrested for Possession of Marijuana and cited for having an expired driver’s license.

A passenger in the Chevrolet, 58-year-old Kevin Cutrer, of Benton Harbor, MI, was arrested for Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Paraphernalia.

Bartlett and Cutrer were taken to the Steuben County Jail.
