LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –A non-working tag light led to a man’s arrest for crack cocaine early Sunday morning.

A Lawton Police officer was patrolling around Northwest Parkview and Cherry when he saw a black Cadillac CTS without a working tag light. The officer pulled the vehicle over and asked the driver, Warren Stevenson, for his license and insurance, and he questioned the passenger as well.

Stevenson didn’t have proof of insurance and the officer called for a second officer to help out. Ory, one of the department’s K9 officers, sniffed around the vehicle and gave a positive hit for drugs being present. Stevenson and his passenger were asked to get out of the car and they were searched, but nothing was found on them aside from a black stick in Stevenson’s pocket. However, police did find a silver pipe with a 0.5 gram piece of crack cocaine in the driver side door.

Stevenson was booked for having a defective motor vehicle, not having insurance, possession of cocaine and for having drug paraphernalia.
