A Memphis man is facing drug-related charges following a traffic stop in Memphis last week. Landon T. Foster, 22, has been charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia and could face additional charges for illegal possession of a controlled substance. He was also ticketed for failure to drive on the right half of the roadway and driving without a valid driver’s license.
According to court documents, a Scotland County Sheriff’s Deputy initiated a traffic stop of a Toyota 4Runner after it was observed speeding and repeatedly crossing the center line. The stop occurred at 7:23 p.m. on April 15 on Jackson Street in Memphis.
At that time, Foster was allegedly found to be in possession of marijuana as well as a prescription pill bottle containing what was believed to be alprazolam, a class 4 controlled substance.
A Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper made the drug arrests.
Foster was charged with class A misdemeanor unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and class A misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, both as a prior offender. Failure to drive on the right half of the roadway is a class C misdemeanor and driving without a valid driver’s license is a class D misdemeanor.
