A man was arraigned on a charge of possession controlled substance less than 1 gram Friday, stemming from a traffic stop in September.

On Sept. 4, 2019, Killeen police stopped a suspicious vehicle, driven by a man they identified as Justin Rosario, according to an arrest affidavit.

Police said Rosario consented to a search of his vehicle. Police saw the a pill bottle with two pills in the center console, the affidavit said.

A forensic scientist with the Texas Department of Public Safety said the pills contained meth and weighed less than 1 gram, police said.

Rosario told the Herald on Monday there was no traffic violation and he is unsure why police pulled him over.

He said he did have three ecstasy pills on him and a small amount of marijuana.

"I know that I'm wrong for having it," Rosario said, adding he should have never been pulled over.

Justice of the Peace Daryl Peters arraigned Rosario Friday and set his bond at $20,000. As of Friday, he was not listed on the Bell County Jail roster.
