Two Logansport men were arrested for methamphetamine-related charges on Saturday.

Taylor James Lee, 26, of the 400 block of Spencer Street, and Sean J. Jones, 36, of the 1400 block of High Street, have each been charged with Level 2 felony dealing methamphetamine, Level 3 felony possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both face sentences of up to 30 years on the Level 2 felony and up to 16 years on the Level 3 felony.

The arrests came after a traffic stop by Indiana State Trooper Chad Babbs about 10:41 p.m. on Nov. 16.

Babbs pulled over a Dodge Charger near Third Street and Linden Avenue for allegedly having blue lighting activated on the front of the vehicle.

Jones was driving.

As Babbs spoke to Jones, he noticed signs that something illegal might be happening.

He called in Logansport K-9 Officer Bryce Hall, and Hall’s narcotics detecting police dog, Krypto, walked around the vehicle, conducting a “free air sniff.”

The dog signaled detection of possible illegal drugs in the vehicle.

Police searched the men and vehicle and allegedly found methamphetamine, a smoking pipe and a scale.

Jones and Lee were arrested and incarcerated in the Cass County Jail.
