Cadillac woman arrested outside church for meth possession
A 33-year-old Cadillac woman faces a charge of meth possession after she was arrested Tuesday while parked outside a Wexford County church.
Michigan State Police spotted the woman's vehicle outside a "place of worship" in Haring Township about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday, police said.
Though there were snowy, blowy conditions, and other vehicles in the area were covered in snow, this vehicle was not.
Troopers approached and found two people inside: the driver, a man from Gladwin, and Melissa Ann Gautz, 33.
Police "noticed items associated with drug use" and searched the vehicle, allegedly finding a baggie with crystal meth. They arrested Gautz and allowed the driver to leave.
Gautz was arraigned at 84th District Court in Wexford County on one count: possession of methamphetamine. She was given a personal bond, which would need to be paid only if she misses a court date.
Gautz is due in court again on March 9.
