A traffic stop on US41 South landed a Henderson man in jail for drug trafficking.

Henderson County Sheriff’s deputies and Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force detectives arrested 35 year old Sedrick C. Hancock of Henderson around 2:20 p.m. Thursday at the 13 mile marker.

During the traffic stop by authorities, the sheriff’s office says detectives spoke with the driver of the vehicle and Hancock, who was a passenger. They say it was confirmed that Hancock had active Failure to Appear Warrants through Henderson County on multiple driving charges including DUI, as well as Possession of Synthetic Cannabinoid Agonists (Synthetic Marijuana).

During a search of the vehicle, detectives reportedly found a prescription bottle that contained an amount of suspected marijuana and packaging in the ash tray. They also reported a large plastic zip-lock bag containing approximately a half pound of K-2, or synthetic marijuana, was found under the seat where Hancock was sitting. According to police, Hancock admitted the K-2 and marijuana belonged to him.

Hancock was booked into the Henderson County Detention Center under a 7-thousand dollar bond for Trafficking a Controlled Substance – Synthetic Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
