Traffic stop results in marijuana arrest


Two men were arrested for marijuana possession on Feb. 18.

Chickasha Police Officer Reid Kerr said while he was patrolling, he saw a car pull into a driveway and stall with its lights off, which he associated with avoiding the police. When the car began driving again, Kerr said he saw the car swerve between lanes and that its left tail light was defective, so he conducted a traffic stop, according to a police affidavit.

"I contacted the driver Adam Apodaca and passenger Kaleb Linn, who appeared very nervous," Kerr said. "I asked them why they had pulled into the driveway…Adam told me it was to pick up a friend and then immediately after that said that it was his grandfather's house."

After a driver's license and warrant check, Kerr searched the car and found one bag of marijuana in the passenger door and one in the back of the car in a lunch box, the affidavit reads.

"I then asked them whose weed was in the vehicle. Adam answered that it was theirs," Kerr said. "I asked if they had both been smoking the marijuana and Adam answered yes."

Apodaca and Linn were arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession and taken to the Grady County Jail.
