Traffic stop lands three in jail on cocaine charges | Crime
Failing to dim his high beams landed a Blytheville man and two others in police custody.
Just before 5:30 a.m. Sunday, August 5, Officer Chelsey Grimes of the Blytheville Police Department stopped a silver and orange Mustang after he said the vehicle failed to dim its lights.
While talking to the driver, 20-year-old Charles Henderson of Blytheville, Officer Grimes reportedly smelled a “strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.”
Grimes had Henderson and his passengers, 19-year-old Lee McDougal of Blytheville and a juvenile, get out of the car while he and Lt. Nick Nelson searched the vehicle.
During their search the officers reported finding a small plastic baggie containing suspected cocaine in the passenger side door.
Henderson and McDougal were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance (cocaine). The juvenile was turned over to juvenile authorities.
