On January 2, 2017 a Sergeant from the Bates County Sheriff’s Office conducted a vehicle stop near east 52 and N highway on a Hyundai car for multiple lane violations.
Dispatch advised the Sergeant that the passenger, Samantha Markus (DOB 8/5/90) had a warrant from the City of Lamar for Failure to Appear on a traffic violation. The warrant was extraditable. Markus was placed under arrest.
The driver was asked to exit the vehicle. The Sergeant then patted down the subject for his own safety. The driver, Michel Lindsay (DOB 7/25/66) had a key holder in his pocket that had a white crystal substance inside of it. The Sergeant also located a small plastic bag inside Lindsay’s pocket. The substances both field tested positive for methamphetamine. Lindsay was then placed under arrest. Both subjects were then transported to the Bates County Jail for processing.
Once at the jail both subjects were searched again by Detention Officers. Markus had hidden in her person a syringe and a methamphetamine pipe. Markus could be facing federal charges for bringing drug paraphernalia inside a Federal Holding Facility.
Lindsay was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance except 35 grams or less of Marijuana and with Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Both warrants had a bond set at $7500.00 cash or surety.
