Man Arrested for Trying to Hide Meth, Marijuana from Shepherd Deputies

Shepherd police arrested a man they say was trying to hide meth and marijuana from officers in a car.

And then the vehicle’s owner gave consent to search it.

Police were called to the parking lot of the shepherd shell gas station Wednesday.

They say Jared Wright of Alma was trying to hide something while inside a vehicle talking with officers.

With consent from the owner, officers found crystal meth and marijuana inside.

Wright was arrested.

He’s now charged with having meth and marijuana and planning to sell it.
