A Manton man was charged with delivery of meth and having open intoxicants in a car after being stopped by troopers in Cadillac early Thursday, according to Michigan State Police.

Troopers had stopped a driver for an equipment violation on Crippen Street near Shelby Street, but found that the driver had a revoked license. The passenger, Nathan Cook, 45, was found with an open, partially full beer can near his feet, and further investigation found that Cook had meth.

Syringes, a half empty bottle of liquor and a large amount of clear plastic bags in the center console were found during a search of the car, according to Michigan State Police.

The driver of the car was issued a citation for driving with a suspended license and open intoxicants in a car, while Cook was arrested and charged with one count of delivery of meth, one count of open intoxicants in a car, and habitual offender third offenses.

Cook is expected back in court in mid-June.
