A defective headlight on a Honda Element traveling on State Highway 154 at 10:06 p.m Sunday reportedly caught Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Chris Sorley’s attention and lead to a traffic stop .
Sorley reported smelling a marijuana odor emitting from the vehicle on approach. When asked if he had any kind of marijuana inside the vehicle, 23-year-old Bashir Ibrahim of Fargo, North Dakota, allegedly showed the trooper a container full of THC oil; it weighed 11.62 grams. Thus, Ibrahim was arrested for possession of 4 grams or more but less than 400 grams of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance, Sorley alleged in arrest reports.
Ibrahim remained in Hopkins County jail Monday morning. Bond on the controlled substance charge was set at $20,000, according to jail reports.
The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office is located at 298 Rosemont St., Sulphur Springs, TX 75482. Non-emergency calls can be made to (903) 438-4040.
