Rochester Man Arrested On Methamphetamine Charges

A Rochester man was arrested on methamphetamine-related charges after being stopped going the wrong way on a one-way street in Knox.

Aaron Egger told a Knox City police officer that he was on his way to pick up someone and tried to go down the street but it was blocked so he went the wrong way down the one-way street. The police officer said he just came from there and it was not blocked. The officer asked to search the car but Egger declined saying it wasn’t his vehicle. The owner then arrived on scene and gave permission to search the car.

Police reportedly found controlled substances, a packaged and processed substance that later tested positive for methamphetamine and cold medication that is known to be precursor in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Aaron Egger was then arrested on preliminary charges of Dealing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine and two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance.
