Paris Man Jailed After Marijuana, Handgun Found During Traffic Stop

A Paris man was jailed early Sunday morning on a weapon charge after a handgun and marijuana were found in his vehicle during a traffic stop.
A sheriff’s deputy reportedly stopped a Jeep Grand Cherokee at 2:20 a.m. May 26 for traveling 72 mile per hour in a 65 mile per hour speed zone on State Highway 19 north, just south of County Road 4764.

While talking to the 27-year-old Paris man, the deputy reported smelling a marijuana odor emitting from the Jeep. When asked if he’d smoked any marijuana in the vehicle, he allegedly denied doing so, but said he’d driven past a skunk and the smell was still in the vehicle.
The deputy requested and was given permission to search the vehicle. The deputy reported finding a plastic bag containing a green leafy substance he believed based on his training to be marijuana, as well as a small 9 mm handgun under a secondary compartment in the center console. He told the man it is unlawful to be in possession of illegal substances while carrying a firearm, and took the Paris man into custody.
Another deputy arrived to assist in concluding the vehicle search. A glass pipe of the kind commonly used to smoke marijuana an a small cigar with marijuana rolled inside of it were allegedly reportedly found. The man was jailed for unlawful carrying of a weapon; the vehicle was impounded.
He was released from the county jail later Sunday on $2,000 bond on the weapon charge, according to arrest reports.
