Traffic stop in Buffalo County nets drugs, paraphernalia (06/25/2014)
On June 21, a Buffalo County Sheriff’s Deputy initiated a traffic stop of a passenger van at the intersection of State Trunk Highway 35 and Silver Street in the town of Buffalo. The van did not have a functioning headlamp. The driver, Trenton Alan Anderson, 36, of Leroy, Minn., was transporting 16 passengers from the Amish community to Cresco, Iowa. The ages of the passengers ranged from two months to 43 years old.

The deputy realized that Anderson may have been impaired and contacted the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Department K9 unit to assist with investigation. After a K9 alerted officers to the presence of a controlled substance in the vehicle, a search of the vehicle was conducted. Deputies located a plastic bag of methamphetamine and three meth pipes in Anderson’s backpack. Anderson admitted that he had smoked meth prior to operating the vehicle.

A records check was done which revealed that Anderson did not have a driver’s license and had four prior convictions for violations related to operating while impaired. Anderson was arrested and taken to the Buffalo County Jail. Charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating with a restricted controlled substance, and operating without a valid driver’s license have been forwarded to the Buffalo County District Attorney’s Office.
