(MITCHELL) - Two men were arrested early Sunday morning after a Mitchell police officer drove by their parked truck in the area of Sixth Street and Grissom Avenue and went back by to see if the men needed help.
That is when the officer smelled the strong odor of alcohol.
Police arrested 18-year-old John Blake of Mitchell and 18-year-old Taylor Carwile of Heltonville on charges of illegal possession of alcohol by a minor.
According to Mitchell Police Chief Mike Hardman, after the arrest, officers did an inventory of the vehicle before it was towed from the scene and discovered a pipe containing drug residue that tested positive for meth.
Blake was then charged with possession of meth and maintaining a common nuisance. Carwile was charged with visiting a common nuisance.
