NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Editor's note: The original story had incorrect information. According to the Nacogdoches County Jail Web site, Jeffrey Rochell Gates was only charged with driving with an invalid license with a previous conviction. He was not charged with possession of a controlled substance as the story originally stated.

Two men are in jail after officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department found controlled substances in two separate traffic violation stops.

According to Patrol Sergeant Brent Handy, around 2:32 p.m. on Saturday an officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in the 200 block of Hughes Street in Nacogdoches. The driver of that vehicle was 34-year-old Herbert Johnson Mosley Jr. who was found to have a suspended Texas Drivers License as well as previous convictions of Driving While License Invalid.

Once the officer searched Mosley's vehicle, he found synthetic marijuana used for smoking. He was arrested for a Class A and B misdemeanor. A passenger was also arrested for warrant.

Handy says several hours later around 3:19 a.m. on Sunday; another man was arrested for a Class A and B misdemeanor after he was stopped for a traffic violation in the 200 block of S. Popp Street in Nacogdoches.

According to a police report, Jeffrey Rochell Gates, 39, was shown to have a suspended driver's license with prior convictions.
