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.

William Creech, 20, and Robert Hager, 36, both of Berea, both were charged Nov. 1 with first-degree possession of a controlled substance. 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.

The officers reported finding two plastic bags of marijuana and a set of scales on Creech. Two Percocet tablets and a .40 caliber handgun also were discovered in the vehicle, according to the release.
