A routine traffic stop in Memphis has a Kirksville man facing serious drug charges. Steven S. Huffman is facing a B felony charge of attempting to distribute/deliver a controlled substance and a D felony charge of possession with intent to sell or distribute drug paraphernalia.
At 10:15 p.m. on Sunday, April 16, Huffman’s vehicle was stopped on Highway 136 in Memphis for a traffic violation. An ensuing search of the vehicle revealed a large amount of marijuana, scales and drug paraphernalia.
