OVID TOWNSHIP – Charges have been filed against a Fort Wayne woman on drug and weapon charges following a traffic stop in Branch County's Ovid Township.
Branch County District Court officials say 39 year old Evelyn Niemeyer was a passenger in a vehicle that Michigan State Police stopped for speeding on I-69 Wednesday. She told troopers that had a 9MM hand gun underneath the seat she was sitting on, and did not have a concealed weapons permit. As troopers were arresting her for possession of the gun, Niemeyer also said she bought eight Ecstasy pills and she had them in her purse. Officers found the pills in a bag. A field test was done and one of the pills tested positive for being Ecstasy.
Niemeyer was arraigned Thursday with bond set at $10,000. She is scheduled to have a probable cause hearing on June 22 and a preliminary examination on June 29.
