Traveling in the wrong lane landed two men in jail over the weekend.

On Feb. 12 Jacksboro Police Officer Daniel Terry conducted a traffic stop in reference to a Green Ford Escort traveling in the wrong lane, the arrest report said. As Terry approached the car, he noticed one of the men allegedly put something in the front of his pants, Terry’s report said. Terry requested Caleb Bolton, 26, of Speedwell, remove the item, the arrest report said. After Bolton complied, it was found to be an orange octagon shaped tablet. Upon further investigation, Terry found that Bolton was also driving on a suspended driver’s license, the arrest report said. Bolton was arrested and charged with possession of schedule III controlled substance and driving on a suspended license. He was released on a citation bond the same day. Caleb Bolton’s court date is set for Feb. 19.

Jeremy Bolton, 28, of Cotula Road, Duff, was also arrested after Terry found he had a violation of probation charge. When searching Jeremy Bolton, Terry found a syringe in his pant’s pocket. Bolton allegedly said the syringe was his and he was using it to inject pain pills, Terry’s report said. Jeremy Bolton was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of probation. He is currently being held at the county jail on $7,500 bond. His court date is also set for Feb. 19.
