SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- Spokane Valley Sheriff’s deputies found methamphetamine inside a man’s ice cream container during a traffic stop Friday night.
A deputy pulled over Steven Fitch, 60, on S. Havana for a traffic stop at 10:45 p.m. Authorities said Fitch did not have a valid driver’s license.
While the deputy was checking Fitch’s driving status in his patrol car, he saw Fitch reaching down toward the center console in his car. The deputy ordered Fitch out of the car because he was concerned for his own safety.
The deputy saw Fitch’s hands were covered in a white creamy substance and saw a quart of ice cream in the center console. Officials said a small plastic baggie was found in the ice cream. The baggie contained methamphetamine.
Authorities said Fitch tried to convince the deputy that he had no idea how the meth got into his ice cream.
Fitch was booked into jail for Possession of a Controlled Substance, methamphetamine, Driving While suspended and two other infractions.
