An Interstate 30 traffic stop Saturday resulted in location of THC edibles and marijuana and an Arkansas man’s arrest for controlled substance possession, according to arrest reports.
Cumby Police Officer Jonathan Painter reported seeing a gray vehicle pass traveling at a high rate of speed as it passed his station patrol vehicle on Interstate 30 east near mile marker 112.
