A Bear Lake man and Kaleva woman are facing drug possession charges following their arrest March 9 in Springdale Township in Manistee County, according to a press release from the Michigan State Police Cadillac Post.

A trooper executed a traffic stop that resulted in an arrest for outstanding warrants and new drug charges.

The arrests occured during a traffic stop that was executed March 9 at about 2:50 p.m. The vehicle was stopped on Healy Lake Road near 13 Mile Road in Manistee County. The vehicle’s passenger was identified as 37-year-old Jason Davis of Bear Lake. Davis had outstanding warrants out of Grand Traverse County and was taken into custody.

A search of his person revealed substances believed to be illegal drugs, according to police. The driver was identified as 33-year-old Amber Oshea of Kaleva. Oshea became non-compliant during the roadside investigation, according to the report.

The trooper became suspicious that she was attempting to hide or destroy evidence. She refused to follow several commands from the trooper and was also taken into custody, according to police. A search of the vehicle produced additional suspected drugs and evidence of intravenous drug use. Both Davis and Oshea were lodged in the Manistee County Jail. Upon reviewing the case, the Manistee County Prosecutor’s Office issued a felony warrant charging Oshea with possession of meth, possession of analogues, possession of a Schedule 5 controlled substance and resisting and obstructing an officer.

A felony warrant was also issued for Davis, who was charged with possession of meth/ecstasy and possession of analogues. Both subjects were arraigned yesterday in 85th District Court.
