Christopher Michael Jespersen, 37, of Atlantic was arrested Monday on charges of controlled substance violation and failure to affix drug stamp.


An Atlantic man was arrested Monday morning when his erratic driving led to a traffic stop along U.S. Interstate 80 and the alleged discovery of an ounce of methamphetamine in his possession.

Christopher Michael Jespersen, 37, of 304 Olive St., Atlantic, was charged with controlled substance violation and failure to affix drug stamp.

The incident began about 4 a.m. Monday near the 103 mile marker of westbound U.S. Interstate 80, where a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff observed a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo being operated erratically by Jespersen.

In the course of communicating with Jespersen, the deputy allegedly saw “a methamphetamine pipe” lying “in plain view in the vehicle,” according to court records.

A probably-cause search of the vehicle ensued, allegedly disclosing “over 28.35 grams of methamphetamine” contained “in multiple bags as well as clean baggies for packaging and digital scales,” according to court records.

Jespersen is held in the Dallas County Jail in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.

Jespersen was convicted of possession of a controlled substance in 2004 in Cass County District Court. He was convicted of possession of a controlled substance in 2007 in Cass County District Court. He was convicted of second-offense possession of a controlled substance in 2008 in Audubon County District Court. He was convicted of second-offense possession of a controlled substance in 2008 in Cass County District Court. He was convicted of second-offense possession of a controlled substance and prohibited act by registrant in 2010 in Cass County District Court.
