“Rouse was the passenger of the vehicle, and after getting permission Rouse was patted down.”



Weed said officers located a small bag of crack cocaine in Rouse’s possession after Rouse had agreed to a pat down, but said the amount had yet to be determined.

Rouse field-tested positive for cocaine and was taken into custody and transferred to the Pike County Jail at approximately noon, where he was being held on $7,500 bond for possession of a controlled substance, according to Weed.

According to the Pike County Jail logs Rouse made bond at approximately 3:50 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
