Saturday, October 3, 2020, Atoka Police Officer Jedediah Griffith was on routine patrol when he observed a maroon 2012 Volkswagon Passat traveling southbound on Highway 69 with its bright lights on with traffic present.
Officer Griffith made contact with the driver, identified as Roc’Kayla Lucindra Bradley, 20, from Kansas City, Missouri.
The strong smell of marijuana was coming from inside the vehicle. After an inquiry about the odor, a back seat passenger handed the officer a Sweet Weed cigar package with a burnt blunt inside.
Bradley told Officer Griffith there were no more illegal drugs inside the vehicle.
As Officer Griffith returned to the vehicle, after checking Bradley’s information, he still detected the odor of marijuana.
The occupants of the Passat were asked to exit while the car was being searched.
An orange pill bottle with 19 blue pills and three white pills were located inside the vehicle. The pills were identified as Alprazolam (Xanax) and Oxycodone Hydrochloride.
Bradley stated the pills belonged to her and she was taking them to her brother.
She was placed under arrest and transported to the Atoka County Jail. Once at the jail, a Jailer found two clear bags containing a green leafy substance weighing 18 grams that later field tested positive for marijuana.
She is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance (misdemeanor).
