TISHOMINGO COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - After a Tishomingo County man was arrested at a traffic stop, deputies later found drugs and paraphernalia hidden in his pants, according to the Tishomingo County Sheriff's Office. 

Rodney Lindley, 37, of Iuka, was arrested over the weekend along with two others, Sheriff John Daugherty said. 

On Sunday, deputies pulled over the vehicle Lindley was in on Battleground Drive in Iuka for not displaying a tag, according to Daugherty. Upon approaching the vehicle, deputies noticed "several open containers of alcohol throughout the vehicle and learned that both, the driver and passenger, had been drinking."

Deputies also discovered the back-seat passenger had outstanding felony warrants out of Alabama, Daugherty added. That person was immediately arrested along with the driver and other passenger. 

After deputies and the suspects arrived at the jail, a search on Lindley revealed what appeared to be methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia hidden inside his pants, according to Daugherty. 

Lindley was officially charged with felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and he remains in the custody of the Tishomingo County Jail.
