According to the Madisonville Police Department, Officers Jeff Miller and Russell Nichols noticed a vehicle on East Arch Street with expired Kentucky license plates. Upon reaching the vehicle, Miller noticed a purple Crown Royal bag in the back floor board of the backseat. After speaking with the driver, consent was given to search the vehicle.

The bag contained four plastic bags with 7.1 grams, 4.5 grams and 10.6 grams of marijuana.
