A man is facing felony drug charges after police said methamphetamine was found in his vehicle during a traffic stop.

Tommie Lee Jones, 20, was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin on Friday on a charge of possession of methamphetamine in an amount of less than 1 gram. A Killeen police officer stopped Jones on Wednesday afternoon near the intersection of State Highway 195 and State Highway 201.

According to an arrest affidavit, Jones was driving erratically and traveling 80 mph in a 60 mph zone.

An officer used a narcotics detection dog, named Renzo, to perform a “free-air” sniff on the vehicle. The dog showed an interest in the driver’s side door.

Inside the vehicle, police found a plastic bag with a substance that, according to a field test kit, was methamphetamine.

The total weight of the methamphetamine, with packaging, was 0.7 grams.

Potvin set Jones’ bail at $20,000.
