WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - Officials with the Wichita Falls Police Department said a couple was arrested Wednesday night following a traffic stop on the city's east side.

Around 9:30 p.m. officers stopped a vehicle in the 700 block of Bonner. The driver was identified as Ryan Kiggans, 32, and the passenger and Amanda Kiggans, 32.

Police said Amanda had something in her hand, and when asked what it was, she opened her hand to reveal five Adderall pills.
