Teen arrested for pot possession
An 18-year-old was arrested for pot possession following a traffic stop Saturday night.
A Weatherford officer reported stopping a vehicle at 8:19 p.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of Fort Worth Highway for failing to maintain a single lane and speeding.
The officer advised he could smell the odor of burnt marijuana coming from inside the vehicle as he spoke to the driver, identified as Kele Jones, of Santo. Jones reportedly gave verbal consent to search the vehicle, where a black smoking pipe and a clear plastic baggy of marijuana were allegedly found in the center console.
Jones was taken into custody for possessing a usable amount of marijuana, less than 2 ounces. He was released from Parker County Jail Sunday afternoon after posting $750 bail.
Around 3 a.m. Sunday, two Weatherford police officers were at a business in the 100 block of Santa Fe Drive when a man, later identified as Joshua Johnson, 26, of Weatherford, was observed behind a business center in the 200 block of Fort Worth Highway. Johnson was seen to “abruptly turn around and disappear from view” after seeing the officers, according to a report. While subsequently conducting a business check, Johnson was seen walking southbound in the 200 block of South Walnut Street.
Johnson was determined to be intoxicated in public and was arrested. Once inside Parker County Jail, Johnson was found in possession of a controlled substance, identified as methamphetamine, and he was also charged with felony possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility. He remained in Parker County Jail under bonds totaling $10,800.
