Routine patrol led to a traffic stop and ended with possession charges last Friday, according to Sgt. Freddy Walker with the Caryville Police Department.

While the suspects inside the vehicle allegedly willingly handed over a pack of rolling papers, a more in depth search led officers to find a container with marijuana, said Walker.

The driver of the vehicle, Carl Aubrey Cook, gave Walker consent to search. In addition to finding the papers and marijuana, Walker discovered a white round pill and a pair of metal knuckles, he said.

Cook and a passenger in the vehicle were also allegedly in possession of a large amount of cash, said Walker. The passenger said the money was for rent, according to the incident report.

The passenger was given the money and released while Cook was arrested at the scene. Cook was charged with possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a legend drug, possession of schedule VI controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
