FREMONT – Police made two arrests yesterday, removing a significant quantity of methamphetamine from the city’s streets as they did.
On Monday afternoon just before 1PM, police stopped a vehicle with expired license plates in the 2600 block of east 23rd street. Michael C. Collins, 52, of Fremont was found to be driving during revocation, and without insurance. As a result, he was placed under arrest. During a search of the car, a small amount of a white crystalline substance was found in a plastic wrapper – this later tested positive for methamphetamine. Collins was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine.
A female passenger in the car gave a false name & birth date to the investigating officer in order to avoid arrest on outstanding warrants stemming from fictitious plate, licensing, and failure to appear charges in Douglas county. The investigating officer quickly uncovered the woman’s ruse, and Stacey S. Stonerock, 39, of Fremont was arrested on suspicion of criminal impersonation.
After her arrest, a search of her person at the Dodge County jail yielded a plastic baggie containing nearly 19 grams of methamphetamine. The street value of the drugs is estimated at over $1,500. Stonerock will face additional charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
