A sheriff’s deputy arrested a 27-year-old Grand Prairie man on a controlled substance charge Saturday night after allegedly finding vials of THC oil , suspected THC gummies, and loose marijuana in the Honda Accord he was driving.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Lavender reported stopping Kenneth Raynard Harris II at 8:25 p.m. for driving in the left lane of Interstate 30 from the 124 mile marker to the 120 mile marker without passing other vehicles.
Lavender alleged Harris appeared extremely nervous to the point he was shaking. The interdiction deputy reported seeing a container for THC oil in the front passenger’s seat of the car. Lavender reportedly had Harris exit the car so he could continue his investigation.
Harris allegedly admitted to having controlled substances in the car. A probable cause search revealed four 1-gram vials of THC oil, a cylinder containing a baggy with a small amount of suspected loose marijuana and a cylinder containing a large amount of suspected THC gummies. Harris was taken into custody and transported by a Texas Department of Public Safety to Hopkins county jail. The car was impounded and the contraband were seized as evidence, Lavender alleged in arrest reports.
Harris was booked into jail for possession of 4 grams or more but less than 400 grams of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance, according to arrest reports. He was released from the county jail Feb. 9 on a $20,000 bond on the charge, according to jail reports.
