Rock Rapids, Iowa — A routine traffic stop in Rock Rapids late Thursday night resulted in the arrest of a Washington State man on seven separate charges.

According to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, shortly after 10:30 Thursday night one of their deputies stopped a motor vehicle that was pulling a trailer for an equipment violation on South Fairlamb Street in Rock Rapids.

Authorities say upon investigation they charged the vehicle’s driver, 52-year-old Michael Morris of Kent, Washington, with: Failure to Have a Valid Driver’s License; Failure to Provide Security Against Liability; a Registration Violation; Possession of Marijuana Drug Paraphernalia; Possession of Methamphetamine Drug Paraphernalia; and Operating Without Required Ignition Interlock Device, all of which are misdemeanors. In addition, the investigation also reportedly determined that the trailer Morris was towing at the time of his arrest had  been reported stolen out of Rock County, Minnesota, prompting Lyon County officers to add a charge of 2nd Degree Theft, which is a Class D Felony.

Deputies say Morris was transported to the Lyon County Jail.
