BPD traffic stop results in drug, weapons charges

BEREA — A traffic stop on Prospect Street earlier this month led to police arresting two men on drug and weapons charges.

Creech also was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Berea officers conducted a traffic stop on the men’s vehicle on Prospect Street for a minor traffic offense, according to a BPD news release. Creech, who was the driver, gave officers consent to search the vehicle, the release stated.
