A traffic violation resulted in a Graceville man facing charges for methamphetamine possession charges here.

Chipley Police pulled Roy Thomas, Jr., 57 of Graceville, over in a routine traffic stop after observing a traffic violation Friday, June 13.

Officers discovered the vehicle had never been registered, and the license plate expired in 2011.

Thomas was also driving on a suspended license, a fact he acknowledged to officers.

According to reports, officers noticed Thomas "exhibiting behavior consistent with someone under the influence of methamphetamines."

Thomas was placed under arrest, and officers began searching his person before placing him in the patrol car. During that search, officers found a container which held an undisclosed amount of methamphetamine.

Thomas was then placed under arrest and transported to the Washington County Jail where he was booked on the charges of possession of a methamphetamine, failing to register a motor vehicle, driving while license suspended or revoked, and display of driver’s license known to be suspended or revoked.
