Four arrested on drug and firearm charges in Fulton Co. traffic stop

Four people were arrested on drug and firearm charges following a traffic stop on U.S 31 near State Road 25 Friday in Fulton County.

 

About 11:45 am, a traffic stop by Indiana State Police Trooper Jesse Reason led to the arrests of Anthony Brockington, 26, Jalen Davis, 26, Diarra Wright, 23, Morgan McClintock, 23.  All four are from Anderson.

 

Reason initiated a traffic stop on a Nissan Altima for an unsafe lane movement. The Nissan was driven by Brockington. While Reason was speaking to Brockington, he allegedly smelled an odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. The Indiana State Police report also states that Reason noticed indicators that criminal activity might be afoot. No other mention of what those were is available in the release.

 

During a subsequent search, officers found marijuana and two handguns. One of the handguns was reported stolen from Anderson. Further investigation revealed that Brockington was driving without a valid operator’s license.

 

Brockington and McClintock were arrested for possession of marijuana.

 

Wright faces criminal charges for carrying a handgun without a license, possession of marijuana, and theft of a firearm.  

 

Davis faces charges for possession of marijuana, theft of a firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and carrying a handgun without a license.  

 

All four were incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail.
