A traffic stop in Henderson landed an 18-year old male behind bars for trafficking drugs.

Kentucky State Police conducted the traffic stop on Clay Street on a vehicle for failure to illuminate head lamps and careless driving. Upon further investigation, police say the driver, 18 year old Demontre Langley of Henderson, and a passenger were taken into custody.

According to KSP, Langley was lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center for resisting arrest and first degree trafficking in a controlled substance – cocaine. Police say his passenger was also booked into the Henderson jail, but the release does not disclose the passenger’s name or charges.
