GOBLES – A man who has allegedly been on the run from police for nearly two years was arrested Saturday afternoon by Van Buren County Sheriff’s deputies.
Jason Smith, 21, is wanted by both Allegan and Kalamazoo counties for home invasion and methamphetamine violations, according to police.
Police say when Smith was stopped around 4:30 p.m. near Van Buren and State streets, he was holding meth.
His 27-year-old girlfriend — who brought her two young children along for the ride – was in possession of marijuana, according to deputies.
Police say they searched the couple’s home and found more drugs and drug manufacturing equipment.
Smith is being held in the county jail in Paw Paw while his girlfriend was ticketed.
