by Emily Waldrep

Aaron Thomas Jones, age 24 of Silsbee, was found to be in possession of a controlled substance on May 25 after he was pulled over and searched near Dam-B. The drug found belonged to family group 2-A, which is an illegal incense.

"When I asked him what the substance was, he said it legal weed," said the Game Warden who spoke to Jones. "I then informed him that there is no such thing as 'legal weed.""

Trooper Moses was also on the scene and discovered that Jones had also been consuming alcohol while driving, and preformed a field sobriety test. Jones failed the test and was arrested for DWI with a child under the age of 15 and possession of a controlled substance. His bond was set at $8,500.
