Police say 34-year-old Adam Welch was driving for an extended period of time on the center lane on Riverside Drive just after 2 p.m. on January 11 and almost caused an accident with another vehicle. Officers initiated a traffic stop, and Welch produced a revoked driver’s license. Officers ordered him out of the vehicle and noticed green shake on his pants leg. It was quickly realized he had attempted to swallow marijuana. A search of his mouth was conducted, and there was marijuana in his mouth, which was retrieved, and a pack of cigarillos was located inside the vehicle. He was out on bond for two other incidents at the time of his arrest, both of which conditions prohibit him from possessing any controlled substances.
Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Beck says he immediately noticed how badly 29-year-old Dre’von Davis’ hands were shaking as he conducted a traffic stop on his vehicle Wednesday night. A search of the white Buick would eventually reveal a backpack containing over a pound of marijuana, vape pens, and a handgun. Dre’von Davis is free on a $20,000 bond.
