Two individuals were arrested around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday on drug charges following a traffic stop on North Elm and Maplelawn streets.
Officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with no turn signal, and police asked all occupants for their IDs to which they had reportedly consented.
Officers identified Marvin R. Moore, 47, Hopkinsville, as a backseat passenger; however, Hopkinsville-Christian County Emergency Communications Center notified police that Moore had several emergency protection orders taken out against him by Regina A. Shaw, 50, Hopkinsville, who was reportedly sitting in the front passenger seat.
Officers asked Moore to step out of the vehicle and when doing so they allegedly noticed he had a marijuana blunt on his left ear. Police then searched the vehicle and found that Moore had additional marijuana in his possession, the report stated.
Also while searching the vehicle, police allegedly found a drug pipe loaded with methamphetamine under Shaw's seat next to her purse.
Moore was arrested and charged with violation of a Kentucky EPO and possession of synthetic drugs.
Shaw was also arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence, first-degree possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
