      ATV stop leads to meth arrest

      A Vienna man was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.

      A Vienna man is in Maries County jail on drug-related charges after police found methamphetamine in his all terrain vehicle early Sunday morning.

      Members of the Maries County Sheriff's Office saw the ATV stopped on Route V near Vienna without headlights on.

      Authorities suspected the driver, Jason Roberson, was under the influence of a controlled substance.

      A search of the car turned up suspected meth, and Roberson was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and several traffic violations.

      Roberson has been charged with possession of a controlled substance.

      He was also on probation for drug violations.
