CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Crockett Police Department arrested a 24-year-old Houston woman on a child endangerment charge after they made a traffic stop on her car on Loop 304 and found marijuana in her vehicle Monday.

A 3-year-old child was in the car when police stopped Jackson.

Kriss Kaivian Jackson was booked into the Houston County Jail on a state-jail felony endangering a child charge and A Class B misdemeanor possession of marijuana less than 2 ounces charge.

According to the arrest affidavit, Crockett PD officers stopped Jackson’s vehicle on Loop 304 near State Highway 19 South at about 3:32 p.m. Monday because it had an unreadable license plate.

When one of the officers made contact with Jackson and asked for her driver’s license and insurance information, he noticed a strong odor of bunt marijuana. Jackson allegedly responded, “No” when the CPD officer if she had any drugs or guns in the car.

The Crockett PD officer also noticed that a 3-year-old child was secured in a car seat in back seat of the vehicle.

A search of Jackson’s vehicle turned up a Hershey’s candy package in a cooler on the passenger’s side of the car. The package contained a small plastic baggie with a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana and four joints with smoked marijuana inside of them, the affidavit stated.

Jackson told the CPD officers that the marijuana belonged to her, the affidavit stated. She also even said that she had been smoking marijuana right before the traffic stop, when she was traveling to Crockett from Houston.
