Jonesboro man arrested for meth during traffic stop

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A Jonesboro man was arrested when an officer found drugs during a traffic stop.

Deputy Brandon Womack with the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office was driving down Rains Street Saturday night when he noticed two motorcycles speeding down the road.

Deputy Womack attempted to stop both motorcycles on Nettleton. The rear bike pulled over, but then sped off when Womack was trying to get the front bike to stop.

The driver of the front bike was identified as Brandon Gardner. He did not have an endorsement to drive a motorcycle, and did not have his proof of insurance. After running Gardner through dispatch, Deputy Womack found out Gardner had previously been arrested for narcotics.

According to the police report, Gardner began emptying his pockets when Deputy Womack asked for permission to search him. He pulled a pair of sunglasses, a pack of cigarettes, and a flashlight out of his jacket pockets.

When Deputy Womack looked at the flashlight he noticed it felt light. He opened the end of the flashlight and found a bad of marijuana, two bags of methamphetamine, and numerous xanax pills inside.

Gardner was arrested and faces misdemeanor and felony charges for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor for careless driving, and a misdemeanor for no proof of insurance.

He was taken to the Craighead County Detention Center to await bond.
