A drug charge was placed against a Hickman, Ky., man following a traffic stop Saturday afternoon in Union City. Ricky Shauntell Polk, 29, of 1303 Nelson St., Hickman, was arrested at 4:24 p.m. in the 2500 block of North Everett Boulevard in Union City and charged with simple possession/casual exchange, according to a Union City Police Department report. A police officer reported he was behind a vehicle just after 4 p.m. when he observed that the vehicle’s rear passenger brake light was not working and he ran a check of the vehicle’s registration. The vehicle was stopped and its owner, identified as Polk, was a front seat passenger. While checking the registration, the officer allegedly observed Polk push something under the console. After asking for permission to search the vehicle, police recovered a clear plastic baggy of what appeared to be marijuana from under the console where Polk allegedly was moving around earlier. Polk allegedly indicated it belonged to him and he was placed under arrest, according to the report. Police reported that they also seized $369.18 in cash from Polk.
