Two Warrens residents were referred to the Monroe County District Attorney for multiple charges after a Nov. 11 traffic stop.

Police stopped a vehicle driven by Sarah M. Geisdorf, 32, for an equipment violation. She reportedly told police she was the vehicle’s only occupant, but police noticed a man hiding in the back seat under a pile of clothes, who was identified as Robert Wade Kingsley, 34, who had five felony arrest warrants from Monroe County. He was handcuffed and removed from the vehicle.

A search of Kingsley reportedly uncovered a methamphetamine pipe, and a K-9 unit was summoned to the vehicle. After the K-9 detected the odor of illegal narcotics, police searched the car and reportedly found a small container with white residue.

The report says Kingsley was asked if Geisdorf knew of the warrants. He replied, “I believe so, but I can’t say for sure.”

Kingsley was referred for possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also has a bond condition which establishes a 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew and prohibits him from possessing drugs, which triggered five bail jumping referrals.

Geisdorf was referred for harboring a felon and obstructing an officer.

Trevor Michael Hanson, 35, Sparta, was referred to the district attorney for fourth-offense operating a motor vehicle with a prohibited alcohol content after police observed a vehicle revving its engine shortly before 1:30 a.m. Nov. 12 on Superior Avenue. Police followed the vehicle to Cameron Street and initiated a traffic stop.

According to the report, Hanson told police he was a “DD,” which an officer interpreted as “designated driver.” The report says Hanson had glassy eyes and was speaking in a slow, deliberate manner. After a field sobriety test, Hanson submitted to a preliminary breath test, which recorded a blood-alcohol level of .077. He has a bond condition that prohibits him from driving with a blood-alcohol count of higher than .02.
