JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A Jonesboro man is behind bars after police say he hid a meth baggie in his milkshake.

According to Jonesboro Police, during a traffic stop Skyler Sims was acting very nervous and his hand was shaking rapidly. Officer Bryan Bailey states that he's had previous run-ins with Sims and knew he was out on probation.

During the traffic stop, a K-9 unit alerted officers to a possible controlled substance inside the car. When police searched the car, they found a suspected bag of meth in Sims' Sonic milkshake.

Police tested the baggie, which came back positive for meth. Also during the search, police found two syringes, and a key chain pill container with a white powdery substance at the bottom of the container.

Police say on the way to jail, Sims admitted that he had been hooked on meth for way too long and it had been a problem since junior high.

Sims is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance (meth), felony possession of drug paraphernalia, and felony tampering with evidence.
