Suspected marijuana, meth leads to arrest

Paris man jailed for marijuana possession, felony warrant
Cody Cortez Hill, 23, of Paris, was a passenger in a vehicle stopped for a traffic violation in the 500 block of 10th Street NE at 7:34 p.m. Tuesday when police arrested him on a drug possession charge.
Police said Hill handed an officer a small baggie of suspected marijuana and said he had a pistol under the seat. Hill was charged with possession of marijuana and unlawful carrying a weapon.
Hill was found to have an outstanding felony warrant charging him with evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, police said. That warrant stemmed from an investigation in February 2019 where Hill was stopped for a traffic violation and allegedly ran from the officers.
The driver was released with no charges. Hill was later taken to the Lamar County Jail, where he was not listed among the inmates in online records this morning.
