Wichita Falls man arrested for allegedly trying to eat marijuana during traffic stop

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A Wichita Falls man is behind bars charged with Tampering with or Fabricating Physical Evidence following a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon.

Around 4:00 pm officers pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation at the intersection of Mistletoe Dr. and Johnson Rd.

Police could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle and asked the driver, Aaron Crawley, 21, to step outside the vehicle.

When he was being searched officers asked him to open his mouth. Officers said they could see a large amount of what they believed to be marijuana in his mouth and on his tongue.

The officers asked if he has consumed any marijuana and Crawley denied that he had. A search of the vehicle yielded a small plastic bag with green leafy residue inside of it. Officers said there was also green leafy residue on the floor board of the vehicle.

According to officers, the bag was tied at one end and ripped open at the other. The residue on the bag and the floor board was field tested and came back positive for marijuana.

Crawley was arrested and charged with Tampering with or Fabricating Physical Evidence. As of Wednesday afternoon, no bond had been set.
