Brothers facing drug charges after traffic stop in Cleveland

A traffic stop at 8:30 p.m., June 15, in the Cleveland area resulted in the arrest of two men – Christopher Charles Hackett, 23, and Tim Nathan James, 17.
According to Sheriff Bobby Rader, the men were stopped in the northbound lane of US 59 by deputies with the Sheriff’s Criminal Interdiction Unit. Hackett was driving a 2013 Cadillac XTS. His brother, James, was his passenger. The deputy reportedly was notified that Hackett is a documented gang member.
“When contact was made with the driver, the deputies smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the vehicle. A search of the vehicle was made and the deputies located approximately 4.5 ounces of suspected powder cocaine that was hidden in the dash. The deputies also located currency in the amount of $3,175,” the sheriff said.
Both men were charged with first-degree felony Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance. They were transported to the Liberty County Jail without incident.
