Two arrested on warrants following discovery of meth

Orange County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) deputies arrested two Vidor men on multiple warrants and then reportedly found methamphetamine in their vehicle after a traffic stop July 16.

Criminal Investigator and Public Information Office Janois Strause Grizzaffi reports detectives working along Interstate 10 near Concord in Vidor observed a white 2002 Ford F250 change lanes without first signaling its intent. The vehicle was then observed to travel in and out of its lane of traffic on several occasions. A traffic stop was initiated as the truck exited Interstate 10 at Highway 1442.

The vehicle came to a stop and the driver of the vehicle immediately exited the vehicle. He was identified as Derek Todd Williams, a 48-year-old resident of Vidor. Williams had four city of Vidor warrants for his arrest, Grizzaffi stated. The passenger, identified as 18-year-old Bryan Michl of Vidor, was found to have two city of Vidor warrants. Both were immediately arrested.

Deputies searching the vehicle discovered crystal methamphetamine on both the driver’s seat and the passenger’s seat, weighing in excess of 10 grams altogether,  a second-degree felony.

Both subjects were arrested on the warrants and charged with possession of a controlled substance greater than four grams but less than 200 grams.
