A man who was a long way from home was arrested on drug trafficking charges in Lyon County this week.
Kentucky State Police stopped 30-year old Clifford James of Custer, Washington on I-24 for careless driving and troopers called a K9 unit to the scene. The dog alerted on the vehicle and police say they found two pounds of high grade marijuana located inside the vehicle along with drug paraphernalia.
James was arrested and charged with trafficking in marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and careless driving. He was lodged in the Caldwell County Jail.
