Presque Isle police say charges are pending after a traffic stop in downtown Presque Isle early Wednesday morning turned up a substantial amount of drugs and "dangerous weapons."

Officers Vining and Rackham pulled over a vehicle on Main Street around 3:00 a.m., according to the Presque Isle Police Department. After interviewing the occupants, officers “developed probable cause to execute a search warrant on the vehicle.”

During the search, police allegedly found “multiple dangerous weapons” and approximately 54 grams (2 ounces) of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of $11,000. The weapons apparently include several types of knives.

Presque Isle PD says the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending for all occupants of the vehicle.
