A traffic stop led police to a drug bust Tuesday night.
Around 9 p.m., Paris police officers pulled over Jeremy Lee Ricks, 26, for a traffic violation in the 1000 block of Fitzhugh Avenue.
Paris Police Lt. John Berry said Ricks attempted to throw away a sandwich-sized bag containing several smaller bags of synthetic marijuana and scales.
Ricks was arrested for manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance and possession of fewer than 2 ounces of marijuana. He was taken to Paris Municipal Jail where no bond has been set.
