 JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A Region 8 man arrested Saturday night reportedly told a deputy he did not know about a bag of drugs in the sweatpants he was wearing because the pants were not his.

Krystian Ryan Tamez, 21, of Paragould was arrested for possession of meth or cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and careless driving.

According to the initial incident report from the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office, Tamez was stopped shortly before 11:30 p.m. for speeding on County Road 591 near Monette.

When asked why he was traveling so fast, Tamez reportedly said the vehicle belonged to his brother and “he was late getting it back.”

The deputy stated Tamez seemed “very nervous” and was shaking “uncontrollably.”

The officer also noticed Tamez moving his hand around the center console, the report stated.

Fearing he was trying to conceal a weapon, the deputy asked Tamez to exit the vehicle and performed a “safety pat down.”

Inside the front pocket of Tamez’s sweatpants, the deputy reportedly found a pocketknife. He also found a glass pipe and a Halls cough drop bag containing a small bag of methamphetamine, according to the report.

When asked why he didn’t tell the deputy about the items, Tamez reportedly said he “did not know they were in there because they were not his pants.”

The deputy handcuffed Tamez and took him to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was left without bond to await a probable cause hearing.
