A man and woman from Big Spring were arrested and booked into the Brown County Jail on the charge of possession of a controlled substance and unlawful use of criminal instrument Sunday evening after a traffic stop in Early.

Marshall Louis Coker, 33, and Cassandra Lynn Kirk, 22, were both booked by officer Nathan Field of the Brownwood Police Department after finding a false Dr. Pepper can that contained a “clear baggie” with methamphetamine residue, as well as a set of digital scales that had “a large amount” of meth residue on them, according to the officer’s police report. The amount of meth was less than 1 gram.

Land, according to his report, stopped their gold Chevrolet pickup at 5:13 p.m. for driving on the center portion of a divided highway by running over the curb along Early Boulevard. During the traffic stop, he was given consent to search the vehicle. Both Coker and Kirk claimed ownership and knowledge of the false compartment can and baggie inside. Kirk clamed the set of scales.
