Two Arrested After Traffic Stop Leads to Discovery of Illegal Drugs

A faulty headlight leads to the discovery of a blowtorch, crystal meth, and a large quantity of drug paraphernalia.

Burkburnett police said the illegal find happened on February 2nd, when officers pulled over the driver of  2002 Chevy Impala in the 200 block of South Avenue D.

Police say they noticed the blowtorch and a large handbag, and were told stories by the driver, 30-year-old Jessica Roderick and the passenger, 42-year-old Brent Nichols.

But, according to police, those stories didn't seem to match up, and that's when they searched the Chevy.

Authorities say amphetamine and hydromorphone pills were seized, along with a small amount of crystal meth.

Authorities say while one officer was walking Nichols to the patrol car, Nichols managed to swallow at least 10 hydromorphone pills.

He was taken to the hospital for treatment, and then booked into the Wichita County Jail.

Both Roderick and Nichols were charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance.

Nichols had an additional charge of Tampering with or Fabricating Physical Evidence.
