Graves traffic stop ends with two arrests

Staff report

A traffic stop early Tuesday in Graves County resulted in two arrests. 

Graves County Deputy Richard Edwards saw a car with no brake lights. The car was determined to be driven by Jessica Hamilton, 33.

Edwards and Detective Steve Hendley conducted a traffic stop and a field sobriety test, according to a report from the sheriff's department. Hamilton was charged with driving under the influence. The passenger, Theresa Hitchcock, 51, told police that she had oxycodone for which she did not have a prescription.

Hitchcock was arrested and the vehicle was searched. Deputies found more pills and a smoking pipe with suspected meth inside, the report said.

Hamilton and Hitchcock were taken to the Graves County Jail where Hamilton is alleged to have attempted to flush suspected Lortab pills that she had hidden.

Hamilton was charged with having no brake lights, not having a driver's license in her possession, first-degree DUI, second-degree possession of a controlled substance, promoting contraband, and tampering with physical evidence.

Hitchcock was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance not properly contained.
