CPD: Traffic stop leads to drug arrest in Covington

A traffic stop for a busted taillight resulted in the arrest of a Covington man on drug charges.         

Covington Police Department (CPD) Officer Matt Holbrook was patrolling on Washington Street when he noticed a Dodge Caravan being driven by Jamal A. Brown, 20, had a busted tail light Jan. 8 around 9 p.m. 

According to his report, after stopping the vehicle Holbrook noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. When questioned about the odor, Brown reportedly told the officer there was a bag of marijuana in the glove box. Holbrook then searched the vehicle and found a bag of marijuana in the glove compartment.

Brown was arrested on a charge of possession of marijuana less than an ounce, and the tail light violation.
