A THC vape pen and marijuana found during a State Highway 11 traffic stop Tuesday afternoon resulted in a felony arrest, according to arrest reports.
Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Chris Sorley reported stopping Layne Reese at 2:23 p.m. November 17, 2020 for driving a Dodge 1500 pickup 86 miles per hour in a 60 mph speed zone. As he approached the truck, Sorley alleged smelling a marijuana odor. Reese reportedly told the trooper he thought he was traveling at 75 mph in the 60 mph speed zone.
Sorley had Reese exit the truck. A THC vape pen was reportedly found on Reese and less than 2 ounces of marijuana was located in the vehicle, resulting in Reese’s arrest on a possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge and a possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana charge.
Reese was transported to Hopkins County jail where he remained Wednesday morning, Nov. 18, on both charges.
