Comments Off on Weapons, drugs discovered during Oakdale traffic stop

An Oakdale man was arrested during a traffic stop when police allegedly found weapons in the vehicle and drugs in his pocket.

Ronald R. Mandl, 51, was arrested after the traffic stop in the 800 block of South 13th Street at 11:35 p.m. Wednesday, said Capt. Michael Bauer of the Norfolk Police Division. 

The officer recognized Mandl and knew that his driver’s license was currently suspended. The suspension was confirmed through Norfolk dispatch, Bauer said.

The officer placed Mandl under arrest for driving under suspension.

A search of the vehicle revealed a knife with an 8-inch blade and brass knuckle handle hidden in the front diver’s door, Bauer said.

A small plastic bag was located in a pocket of Mandl’s jeans that contained a crystallized substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine, Bauer said.

Mandl will face potential charges of felon in possession of a weapon, possession of a concealed weapon and possession of methamphetamine as well as driving under suspension.

Mandl was booked into the Norfolk jail and was transferred to the Madison County jail.
