PITTMAN COMMUNITY – A traffic stop leads to an arrest for multiple drug charges.

A Holmes County Sheriff’s deputy was patrolling Roping Road and Anderson Road on November 25 in the Pittman Community when he attempted to pull a vehicle over.

The driver of the vehicle accelerated, turned off the headlights and quickly turned into a driveway.

Deputies located the vehicle behind a chicken house and found the driver had fled on foot.

When deputies began to search the chicken house, a white male was found hiding in the structure.

The man was identified as Nicholas Hobbs and detained by HCSO.

Hobbs stated that he had run ‘because he didn’t have a license’.

A bag was located next to Hobbs that contained items including marijuana and several Xanax pills.

A search of the vehicle found another larger bag containing more marijuana, electronic scales and other drug paraphernalia.

Hobbs was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance and driving while license suspended or revoked.
