February 23, 2023 – A Cumby police officer observed a black Dodge pickup truck with a defective license plate light on Interstate 30 westbound near mile marker 112 around midnight February 22, 2023 and initiated a traffic stop. The driver continued into the rest area before stopping in the roadside park. The sole occupant of the vehicle was a white male from Wake Village, Texas identified as Todd Michael Parker. A strong odor of marijuana was detected emitting from the vehicle, so the officer initiated a search of the vehicle and found 8.547 ounces of a green plant suspected to be marijuana. Parker was placed under arrest and transported to the Hopkins County jail where a subsequent search of his person revealed a baggie stuffed down the front of his pants containing suspected Lysergic Acid Diethylamide also know as Acid or LSD. Todd Michael Parker remains in the Hopkins County Jail on several charges including Possession of Marijuana >4oz<5lbs, Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1-A <20 Units, and Possessing a Prohibited Substance in a Correctional Facility. Bond has yet to be set on the charges.
