Charges Pile Up from Traffic Stop

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man caught driving illegally is now facing drug charges.  William Miller, 59, is being held in the La Porte County Jail without bond.


According to court documents, he was pulled over by Indiana State Police early Tuesday in Michigan City in the area of Franklin Street and St. John Road.  During a computer records check, a trooper discovered the license plate on the Ford Mustang he was driving belonged to 2008 Honda Accord and Miller was wanted on an active felony warrant.  The troop also learned he had a lifetime ban on his driver’s license.


During a search, police said Miller was found with a small amount of methamphetamine, two marijuana cigarettes, a couple of hydrocodone pills along with a white powdery substance Miller claimed was “speed.”


Additional charges could be filed if the marijuana submitted for testing is found to contain fentanyl, police said.
