A man in Copperas Cove was arrested following a traffic stop Wednesday.

Jason Reid Norton faces a possessions charge of a controlled substance. He was arraigned in Coryell County by Justice of the Peace John Guinn.

On Wednesday, an officer witnessed Norton’s failure to make a complete stop at a stop sign.

She performed a traffic stop in the 1200 block of South 17th Street.

When the suspect was unable to produce a driver’s license, the officer discovered a suspended license and an outstanding warrant out of the Bell County Sheriff’s Department. During the vehicle impound process, a clear plastic bag with a white substance was found. It was later identified as methamphetamine. Norton’s bail was set at $10,000 for the state jail felony.
