LINCOLN COUNTY - The Lincoln County Sheriff's office found $1,000 worth of meth in a Merrill man's car. 

Police pulled over the 29-year-old's car because he had a felony warrant for his arrest. The man's name is being withheld until he's been formally charged. 


The man was pulled over on State Highway 17 north of Merrill around 11:40 p.m. Tuesday. 

A K9 searched the car and found drugs. Officers found $1,000 worth of methamphetamine.

He was booked into the Lincoln County Jail on charges of possession of meth with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana, and with the warrant for probation violations. 

He is due in court Thursday.
