[ISP] Two Elkhart Men Arrested for Drugs and Out-of-State Warrants
Start Date: 3/5/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/5/2014
Entry Description
Steuben County, IN-Two men from Elkhart were arrested yesterday afternoon on the Indiana Toll Road by the Indiana State Police on controlled substance charges along with numerous warrants from both Michigan and Florida.

According to Trooper Benjamin Kirk, at approximately 1:00 p.m., he initiated a traffic stop on a 2000 Dodge Ram pickup truck at the 139.5 mile marker on the eastbound side of the Toll Road. During his conversation with the driver, 38 year old Anthony S. Knight, it was learned that Knight did not have any form of identification and that his driving privileges were suspended. Kirk later learned that there were 11 active felony arrest warrants issued out of Cass County, Michigan for Knight. Five were drug-related and six were weapons-related charges.

Kirk also learned that Knight's passenger, 38 year old Rod A. Riege, who has ties to the Devil's Disciples, had an active felony arrest warrant issued for him out of Marion County, Florida for aggravated stalking with a credible threat. Riege was allegedly found with hydrocodone pills in his possession along with a pill crusher.

Both men were taken into custody without incident and incarcerated in the Steuben County Jail. Further investigation by Kirk revealed a small bag inside the passenger compartment of the truck that contained both an old identification of Riege's and a small bag of methamphetamine. Both men were preliminarily charged with the following:

• Anthony S. Knight
o Driving While Suspended-Prior
o 11 Felony Arrest Warrants (Cass County, Michigan)
• Rod A. Riege
o Possession of a Controlled Substance
o Possession of Methamphetamine
o Reckless Possession of Paraphernalia
o Felony Arrest Warrant (Marion County, Florida)
