JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

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.

Officer Wheelis took Kee into custody for contempt of court and found her car parked with a man in it.

According to the affidavit, officer Wheelis identified the man as Jasson Pagan, 44, of Harrisburg and confirmed he was on felony probation.

A probation search of Pagan was conducted and Officer Wheelis found about 0.6 grams of suspected methamphetamine on him.

A search of the car turned up around 1.5 grams of suspected marijuana, which Pagan also took responsibility for.

He is charged with a felony for possession of meth or cocaine less than 2 grams and a misdemeanor for possession of a schedule 6 substance less than 4 ounces.

He is expected back in court on Jan. 29.
