A man who was wanted for leaving the scene of an accident turned up Monday at a traffic stop in North Platte, along with a stolen car, drugs and another wanted man.

Shane Melton, 24, was wanted for leaving the scene of an injury accident on Aug. 12 in the 1200 block of N. Buffalo Bill Ave. At the time, he was thought to be driving under a suspended license with no proof of insurance, police information officer Rodney Brown said.

And, he was wanted in Logan County, Brown said.

Police stopped the car Monday near Rodeo Road and Sycamore. Melton was a passenger. He was jailed and is held on $30,000 bond.

Officers also found out that the car was stolen from Missouri. It was reported stolen by the police department in Independence, Mo., after a woman’s her purse and car keys were stolen.

The car was driven by Michael Stone, a Missouri man who is wanted for seven offenses in Lincoln County, including theft, writing bad checks and failures to appear.

Brown said police also found several controlled substances in the car.

Stone was arrested, and new charges of possession of stolen property and possession of controlled substances were added to his past charges.
