Faulty Brake Light Leads to Marijuana Arrest, LIVINGSTON, May 7, 2018 - At approximately 3:30 pm on May 7, 2018, Officer Kaleb Barker, with Livingston Police Department was on patrol in Livingston when he spotted an older model Toyota Corolla slow down to pull into Timewise (near Livingston Walmart). Officer Barker observed a faulty brake light and initiated a traffic stop in the parking lot. When Barker approached the car, he smelled a heavy scent of marijuana. Barker had the driver (Timothy Paul Creech, 39, of Lexington, Kentucky) exit the car. With the smell of dope, probable cause was established and Barker had the green light to do a vehicle search. The search turned up a bag of marijuana and various drug paraphernalia. Creech was placed under arrest and transported to Polk County Jail where he was charged and booked in to jail for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. His vehicle was driven from the scene by his passenger.
