NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A traffic stop on Nacogdoches' Stallings Drive resulted in a Memphis, Tennessee man getting arrested on a felony drug possession charge and a Class A misdemeanor gun charge Wednesday afternoon.
Davon Willis, 23, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County jail on a felony drug possession between 1 and 400 grams charge and a Class A misdemeanor unlawfully carrying a weapon charge. Collectively, his bail amount has been set at $14,500.
According to the arrest affidavit, a Nacogdoches PD officer stopped Willis for speeding in the 5400 block of NW Stallings Drive at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
