A Dike teen, arrested on Church Street early Monday morning, is accused of cocaine possession, according to arrest reports.
Officers were dispatched at 1:11 a.m. May 18 to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the 500 block of Church Street. Upon arrival in the area, officer located a blue Chrysler 300, which matched the description of the vehicle described by the caller as suspicious, according to arrest reports.
When officers contacted the occupant, they alleged a strong odor of marijuana was smelled coming from the car.

A drug-free zone enhancement was added to the charge because the arrest occurred within 1,000 feet of Water Oak Preschool, Scott noted in arrest reports.
Moore remained in Hopkins County jail late Monday morning. Bond on the third-degree felony charge was set at $10,000, according to jail reports.
