Dustin Lynn Roby

A routine traffic stop on Interstate 30 at mile marker 132 resulted in a 36-year-old Indian Mound, Kentucky man’s arrest Sunday morning, according to arrest reports.

Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper William Gillentine reported stopping a Ford pickup at 8:05 a.m. Jan. 5 on I-30 for an obscured license plate, specifically a dark tint covering the temporary Tennessee plate, the trooper alleged in arrest reports.

A records check using Dustin Lynn Roby’s Tennessee ID card showed the man not did not have a driver’s license, but did have an outstanding warrant for his arrest. DPS communications operators confirmed the Kentucky Department of Corrections Parole Board warrant for Roby’s arrest to be active. Roby was taken into custody and jailed on the charge, and issued a citation for not having a driver’s license; the truck was impounded, Gillentine noted in arrest reports.

Roby was held in Hopkins County jail without bond on the charge Monday morning, according to arrest and jail reports.
