After a thorough investigation which began with the tips received, officers arrested Travis Baton, 27, of 2651 Manchester Dr., Apt. 3, in Baker, on March 5.
Knaps said that while conducting surveillance on the suspect, officers observed Barton leaving his apartment in his vehicle playing "extremely loud music that could be heard from over 150 feet away with the windows rolled up."
This is a violation of the Baker Loud Music Ordinance, explained Chief Knaps.
The suspect was then stopped and questioned by officers.
During the stop, Barton told police he had drugs in his car and inside his residence. Officers secured a search warrant and recovered 350 grams of marijuana, Hydrocodone pills, three firearms - a Glock semi-automatic pistol, AR-15 Rifle and a 22 cal. rifle - $14,186 in cash and other paraphernalia, Knaps said.
