(Cleveland)- Cleveland Police Chief John Foster says  two big drug related arrest made last week by his officers are still under investigation.  Chief Foster first revealed  information about the arrest during Monday nights city council meeting. 

Foster said after the meeting the first arrest came July 30th  when an officer stopped a vehicle on White Street at Wilford Ash Parkway.  Foster said the vehicle did not have a tag and the windshield was broken.  When the officer approached the vehicle, “ the odor of drugs alerted  the officer”, said Foster. 

Arrested was 32-year old Linsey Hyatt of Bluff City, Tennessee ( See charges below) .  Why was Hyatt in Cleveland, Chief Foster said, “ We’re sure it has a local connection, we’re just not sure what that local connection is yet.”  

Inside the vehicle, a 2007 BMW,  they found 1 ½  ounces of meth and $11,000 in cash.  The chief said while this stop was being made something was happening in Hyatt’s hometown, “ coincidentally, as we were making the traffic stop here in Cleveland, the sheriff’s department there was serving a search warrant on her house, “ said Foster.   

Hyatt remains in jail, Foster said her bond was denied because she is considered a flight risk.

Foster also advised they made another drug related stop Saturday.  In that stop he said they arrested a male subject from Banks County, who was headed to Union County. 

Chief Foster said they think he was transporting, because they found meth in the vehicle, but no cash.  According to Foster both cases are currently very active by his department.
