Indiana State Police arrested a Logansport woman during a Thursday traffic stop for having 226 grams of methamphetamine.

Kimberly Binney, 50, was taken to Cass County Jail to face preliminary criminal charges for dealing methamphetamine, for possession of marijuana and for possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a state police press release.

Binney was stopped for speeding around 4:30 p.m. on U.S. 35 near County Road 1150 South by Indiana State Trooper Caleb Clark.

While Clark spoke to Binney, a Logansport Police officer and his narcotics-detecting police dog arrived to assist.

That officer walked the dog around the 1999 Ford Mustang for a free air sniff of the vehicle, and it allegedly detected the presence of narcotics, police reported.

During a search of the Mustang, officers allegedly found approximately 226 grams of methamphetamine, as well as marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Department also assisted in the traffic stop.
