The Smithville Police Department made two drug arrests Thursday.

28 year old Crystal L. Thompson of 633 Highland Drive is charged with simple possession.

In his report, Officer Matt Farmer states that he was called to a disturbance at the Dairy Queen in Smithville on Thursday at 10:37 p.m. Upon arrival, the officer approached a female (Thompson), who was involved in the disturbance, and noticed that she kept putting her hands in her jacket pockets. He asked her to pull her hands from her jacket pockets. When she did, a small plastic bag containing a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, fell out. During a search subsequent to arrest, the officer also found on Thompson two empty green capsules with residue, believed to be morphine, labeled Kadian 100 milligram. Further charges may be pending.

K-9 officer Bradley Tatrow, in his report, states that on Thursday at 11:53 p.m. he observed a vehicle traveling on Broadstreet which did not have a license tag on it and the driver appeared not to be wearing a seatbelt. After stopping the vehicle and talking to the driver, Officer Tatrow says he smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. As he looked in the backseat where passengers were seated, he saw a package of rolling papers sticking out from under one the passenger's legs. Upon receiving consent to search, Officer Tatrow found a baggie of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana in the floor board in the back seat. The package was found directly under where the back seat passenger (Ware) was sitting.
