A man was arrested at around 4:10 p.m. Thursday for several drug possession charges following a traffic stop at Walnut and East 19th streets.
A Hopkinsville police report states police observed a vehicle making a right hand turn from Hazel Street onto East 21st Street without using a turn signal. Officers then conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle at Walnut and East 19th streets.
Upon contact with the vehicle, police could allegedly smell a strong odor of marijuana, the report said.
Officers reportedly asked who out of the three people in the car had marijuana.
The driver, Kier D. Majors, 33, Hopkinsville, allegedly admitted that he had marijuana and told them it was in his pocket, the report stated.
Police asked Majors if there was anything else in the vehicle, to which he reportedly said there was a bag underneath the driver’s seat with his handgun inside.
Officers found the bag and discovered the handgun as well as a plastic container that allegedly held a plastic baggie of methamphetamine, a plastic baggie of cocaine and another plastic baggie containing two pills believed to be ecstasy or MDMA, according to the report.
Majors was arrested and charged with failure to or improper signal, possession of marijuana, first-degree possession of meth, first-degree possession of cocaine and possession of synthetic drugs.
