JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A traffic stop in Jonesboro early Saturday morning landed three people in jail where one of them was found with drugs in an unexpected place.

It happened at the intersection of Airport Road and East Johnson Avenue.

A Jonesboro Police Department officer pulled over a car for crossing the yellow line several times.

Dispatch told the officer that the driver Kendria Woods, 24, of Jonesboro had a suspended driver's license and a warrant for her arrest out of Marked Tree.

The passenger Joshua Campbell, 25, of Jonesboro also had a warrant out for his arrest.

His was from the Jonesboro Police Department.

Woods gave officers permission to search the car.

When they did, they found marijuana in a baby jar under the front passenger seat.

Jordan Mcadoo, 24, of Jonesboro was also asked to step out of the vehicle.

An officer searched him and found meth in his pocket. 

The officer also said he smelled like marijuana.

According to the police report, Mcadoo ate some marijuana while he was being taken to the Craighead County Detention Center.

While being searched again, officers found that Mcadoo had a plastic bag filled with marijuana in his anus, along with some loose marijuana.

He is being charged with possession of meth and marijuana, tampering with evidence and furnishing prohibited articles.

Mcadoo is being held without bond while he waits for a probable cause hearing.

Woods has a court date scheduled for March 30 for driving on a suspended license.
