GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A Wednesday morning traffic stop uncovered a large amount of meth and a stolen motorcycle.

On Nov. 11, a Greene County sheriff’s deputy pulled over 28-year-old Jacob Cody Mitchell of Paragould on West B Street after noticing the motorcycle Mitchell was driving didn’t have a license plate.

According to the incident report, Mitchell told the deputy he didn’t have a driver’s license on him at the time and began to walk away but returned to the motorcycle to be patted down by the deputy.

The deputy said once he began to pat Mitchell down, he broke away and took off.

The deputy chased Mitchell and threatened to use his Taser if Mitchell didn’t stop.

Mitchell then stopped running and was arrested for fleeing.

Once another deputy arrived on the scene, a search was performed on the motorcycle and deputies reportedly found a small bag of pills that tested positive as hydrocodone, a scale with white residue and a large baggie with 162 grams of meth.

After running the motorcycle's VIN through dispatch, deputies discovered it was reported stolen by the Jonesboro Police Department.

When Mitchell arrived at the Greene County Detention Center, a deputy reportedly found a small bag of meth in Mitchell’s pocket.

Mitchell was booked on charges of possession of methamphetamine with purpose to deliver, theft of a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Mitchell is due in circuit court on Dec. 28.
