EASTON — Easton police on Monday, July 1, arrested a Trappe man during a traffic stop.

According to police, officers stopped a Kia passenger car for speeding on U.S. Route 50 at High Street.

Police said the driver was identified as Filemon Morales Ortiz, 40, of Trappe.

Police said an open can of beer was in the car's center console, and officers smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the car and Ortiz.
