Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Friday, Jan. 8, at approximately 3:30 p.m., Deputy Goldman, with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office Interstate Criminal Enforcement Unit, conducted a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet Impala for a traffic violation while traveling east bound on I-10. While taking enforcement action for the violation, Deputy Goldman noted specific behavioral and demeanor actions of both the driver and passenger that were indicative of potential criminal activity.
The driver was identified as Barrett Dumond, 33, of Peculiar, Mo., who had a non-extraditable warrant from Oregon for violation of probation for possession of methamphetamine. The passenger was identified as Tracy Young, 47, of Hollister, Mo., with no outstanding warrants. Deputy Goldman was granted permission to search the vehicle and requested assistance from Lieutenant Haskell. Upon Lieutenant Haskell’s arrival, Goldman searched the vehicle and discovered a black container on the passenger side floorboard that contained approximately ¾ of a pound of marijuana, Hashish oil, multiple marijuana smoking devices and a torch. Both subjects were taken into custody without further incident.
Both Dumond and Young are facing charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell and over 20 grams, possession of hashish oil and possession of drug paraphernalia.
