A traffic stop for a non-operating license plate light Tuesday night in Brownwood led to the arrest of an out-of-town man on multiple charges and the recovery of items stolen from Walmart, police said.
    Police also seized a small amount of marijuana and methamphetamine in the arrest of Aaron Keel, 33, of Freeport. Keel was booked into the Brown County Jail on charges of possession of a controlled substance in a drug free zone, evidence tampering, theft with two or more previous convictions and possession of marijuana, Brown County Jail records state.
    According to a report by officer Kristobal Salazar:
    Salazar made a traffic stop in the area of Maple and Waco, and Keel said he and his passenger were going to the store to get “a couple of things for the baby and what not.” Keel also said he was just going to Walmart and back.
    Keel said he had not paid for a Walmart item in the car, and later allegedly admitted he hadn’t paid for any Walmart items consisting of a tin trash can and baby monitor.
    Cpl. Brandon Miller located marijuana inside a Coke in the vehicle and also located methamphetamine. Keel allegedly said he’d put the marijuana in the Coke.
    Miller bagged items he took from the vehicle including a set of keys with a black zip-up bag, which contained methamphetamine, a Q-tip, three baggies, a vial and the Walmart items.
