Little Rock, Arkansas — During a traffic stop on September 24, Clay County deputies seized drugs, firearms, and cash from a guy who was on felony probation.

Trinkle’s driver’s license was suspended and she was unable to produce any proof of insurance.
A search of the vehicle was initiated when the deputy saw the corner of a bag tucked beneath the edge of the driver’s seat.
