After officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department made a traffic stop late Thursday night and found that one of the occupants of the vehicle had two outstanding felony warrants, jailers searched him and found that he had hidden marijuana in his rectum, according to an arrest affidavit.

During a probable cause search of the vehicle, the NPD officers found two handguns within easy reach of the occupants of the car, the affidavit stated.

Morris was taken to the county jail, and when jailers did a body search on him, they found marijuana hidden in his rectum, the affidavit stated.
