      Police: Traffic stop leads to meth, stolen gun

      ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Roseburg police made a routine traffic stop on Friday, that they say led to the discovery of meth and a gun stolen out of Douglas County.

      Authorities say that just after 2:00 a.m. Friday morning, an officer pulled over a 1999 Dodge Durango for a minor traffic violation in the 2800 block of Edenbower Blvd.

      The officer identified the driver as David Allen Spencer, 34, of Eugene. He found that Spencer had a warrant for his arrest out of Lane County.

      During the investigation, officials say a consent search led to the discovery of a quarter ounce of meth and two firearms. One of the guns, a 9mm, was reported stolen out of Douglas County.

      Spencer was arrested and lodged in the Douglas County Jail on charges of unlawful possession and delivery of meth, felon in possession of a firearm and first degree theft.

      Spencer is not eligible for bail, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Web site.
