A traffic stop conducted at the intersection of Mill and Clifton streets resulted in two arrests and citations for possession of weapons and drug paraphernalia.

According to a Conway Police Department incident report, an officer conducted the stop on a Chevy Trailblazer for a defective headlight.

The driver of the vehicle showed to have an active warrant out of Lonoke County. The driver consented to a search, and police found a glass smoking device.

The passenger identified his belongings and also consented to a search.

The passenger’s camouflage backpack contained 12 target throwing knives, a fixed blade knife, hygiene products, a ski mask and leather gloves.

There was also a machete on the floor of the vehicle under the bag that was claimed by the passenger, according to the report.

So, knives are restricted in some way? And a ski-mask in sub-freezing weather? The horror.. And who's to say what the pipe is used for smoking? Unless it was being used while driving and containing an illegal substance. Seriously..? Doesn't CPD have better things to do than harrass people? No one has to consent to their ridiculous searches. Just say no. .At least they caught the headlight...
