CAMPBELL

A 32-year-old man was arrested after police found suspected marijuana, painkillers, a prescription bottle with no label containing suspected codeine, and a partially smoked cigar dipped in codeine during a traffic stop.

At 1:30 a.m. Saturday, police noticed an SUV fail to stop at the intersection of 15th Street and Reed Avenue.

Police initiated a traffic stop, but the driver, later identified as Jermaine Hodges of Cambridge Avenue, didn’t come to a stop until two blocks later.

When police approached the SUV, they immediately noticed an odor of marijuana.

They patted down Hodges for weapons shortly afterward, finding a bag with three Percocet pills in his pants and the codeine-dipped cigar in his mouth.

Officers also confiscated 0.8 grams of suspected marijuana and the bottle of suspected codeine, along with $886 in cash.

In addition, Hodges was found to have a suspended driver’s license and an active arrest warrant for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Hodges was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, and for driving under suspension.

He will appear in Campbell Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
