Pastries With High THC Content Found During Traffic Stop

Pastries with a high THC content were found during a traffic stop Thursday morning, resulting in one arrest, according to arrest and police reports.

Sulphur Springs Police Officer Francisco Castro reported stopping a Pontiac Grand Am GT at 10:28 a.m. Thursday, March 17, 2022 on Wildcat Way at Hillcrest Drive for a traffic violation.

Castro said upon contact with the driver, a strong odor of suspected marijuana emitted from the car. The driver, identified in arrest reports as 46-year-old Amanda Leanne Hollingshead of Emory, told the officer she had a “roach” in a THC container, but claimed the roach did not contain THC, Castro noted in arrest reports.

A probable cause search of the silver 2001 model car revealed one plastic sandwich bag containing a brownie and another containing what appeared to be a cookie. When opened, the bags emitted a marijuana odor.
