A Jonesboro man was arrested this week after police found him with drugs while on probation.

Officer Jeremy Wheelis was at a gas station in Jonesboro Thursday when he found Brandi Ann Kee, 41, of Jonesboro who had valid warrants for her arrest through the Jonesboro Police Department.

He is expected back in court on Jan. 29.
