Two Killeen residents were taken into custody after a traffic stop Sunday afternoon revealed the presence of marijuana in their vehicle.

The driver, Jerica Johnson, already had a drug-related warrant out for her arrest and was taken into custody.

The passenger, Theodore Porter, was taken into custody after a search revealed marijuana on his person.

Justice of the Peace Gregory Johnson set Porter’s bail at $19,000. The driver’s bail amount had not been released as of 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Killeen police conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle for a defective tail light, the affadavit shows.

The police officers noted that the driver had an active warrant and was placed under arrest.

Police officers could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car, the arrest affidavit said. Officers conducted a search of probable cause on Porter and realized the odor became stronger around his legs.

Porter was instructed to remove his shoes and officers found a green leafy substance in a cigarillo, the arrest affidavit said.

At the jail, a full search was conducted and officers found that Porter also possessed a crystal like substance in his sock.

The police officers conducted a reliable field test on the substance and it tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine weighing less than 1 gram, the affidavit said.

Porter was charged with knowingly possessing controlled substances less than 1 gram.
