“The officer conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and contacted the driver (Rolin),” McMann said. “During the officer’s interaction with Rolin he asked for consent to search the vehicle. The officer discovered over a dozen pills in the vehicle he was unable to identify, and seized them in order to properly identify what the pills were. Rolin was released.”

McMann said the officer was able to identify the pills as kratom, which is a controlled substance according to Alabama statutes.

“A narcotics investigator obtained an arrest warrant for Rolin for possession of a controlled substance,” he said.

After being served Rolin was then transported to the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton.
