Two Sulphur Springs teens were arrested early Friday morning after they were caught with THC, according to police reports.
Sulphur Springs Police Officer Zach Brown, in arrest reports, said they first caught his attention while he was on a call for service in the 600 block of Whitworth Street at 12:57 a.m. May 24. They were in a Ford F-150 pickup Brown reportedly noticed was failing to drive in a single lane. As the truck passed, Brown reported being able to smell a strong odor of suspected marijuana. He initiated a traffic stop; the pickup stopped at the Carter-East Beckham Street intersection.
On contact with the vehicle occupants, Brown alleged he could smell the suspected marijuana odor emitting from the vehicle. After identifying the occupants, Brown reportedly searched the teens and the truck. The officer found a vial of tetrahydrocannabinol in the pants pocket of the front seat passenger, 18-year-old Jalik O Kneal “Leek” Cleveland, and another vial of suspected THC in the driver’s side back seat, where 19-year-old Cason Obryan “Cawop” Goodson had been sitting, Brown alleged in arrest reports.
Consequently, both Cleveland and Goodson were arrested at 1:03 a.m. for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance in a drug-free zone, a third-degree felony offense. The truck was released to the driver, arrest reports read.
Both Cleveland and Goodson remained in the county jail just before noon May 24. Bond was set at $10,000 each on the charge, according to arrest reports.
