Sgt. Richard Martin initiated a traffic stop after a vehicle leaving Main Street Liquors pulled out in front of him, almost striking his cruiser.
 
Sgt. Richard Martin and Officer Roger Knight were conducting a roadside investigation and questioned a passenger, Emilee B. Frederick, 22, of 60 West End Street, Cadiz. Police found her in possession of a glass jar containing marijuana and cash. She was arrested and charged with Trafficking in Marijuana less than eight ounces.
 
Police questioned a second passenger, Robert W. Sholar, 24, of 254 Riverview Trail, of Cadiz. Sholar appeared intoxicated and refused to cooperate with police.
