Police find drugs inside man's shoes

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A man was arrested on Friday night after Jonesboro police found a small bag containing drugs in each of his shoes.

According to the police report, an officer pulled over a car with three people on the intersection of South Caraway and Parker Road.

When running the names of the people inside the car through dispatch, they found Caroline Barris, 34, had a warrant out of Independence County.

The officer asked the man in the back seat, Cordarryl Coleman, 27, to step out of the car for a search. After searching Coleman, officers asked everyone else to step out and a K9 continued the search of the vehicle.
