PINEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Officers with the Pineville Police Department arrested James Eric Brock, 33, after they say they found marijuana, meth, various drug paraphernalia, and $2,542.85 after a traffic stop Friday night. Brock was the passenger in the vehicle.
He was taken to the Bell County Detention Center that night, charged with trafficking a controlled substance, trafficking marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Officers said they found a backpack Brock dropped while running away, with what they suspected to be marijuana, a handgun, brass knuckles, several items of drug paraphernalia, baggies, and $12,510.
After this, Brock was further charged with additional counts of trafficking marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also faces charges of carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, fleeing and evading police, and a host of driving-related charges.
Brock is held on a $5,000 bond.
