Police find alleged Ecstasy pills after traffic stop

A traffic stop by police early Sunday morning resulted in the arrest of a man on drug charges after Ecstasy pills allegedly were found in his vehicle.

Terence Duggar, 36, of Maumelle, had 118 and-a-half white pills with the symbol of a naked woman on them that tested positive for Ecstasy, Vice and Narcotics Detective Richard McCorvy said in a probable cause affidavit.

McCorvy said the car Duggar was driving was stopped at University Drive and the Martha Mitchell Expressway at 4 a.m. because the vehicle had no headlights on. A passenger in the car had a green vegetable substance that appeared to be marijuana in his lap, and officers found a small bag containing a green vegetable substance in the man’s watch pocket.

According to the affidavit, Duggar and the passenger were taken out of the vehicle and when it was searched, police found the white pills in a bag under the front of the passenger seat in a position where both Duggar and the passenger could reach them.

McCorvy reported that officers found $1,514 cash on Duggar, and that money will be turned over to the prosecutor.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $50,000 bond for Duggar after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with possession of Ecstasy with purpose to deliver.

Bridgforth told Duggar to come back to court March 18.

The passenger in the car was released without charges, pending further investigation.
