Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Jeffery Hooks with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with physical evidence.

Reading from an affidavit by White Hall Police Investigator Charles Treadway, Deputy Prosecutor Brittaney Akel said at 2:40 p.m. Tuesday, Treadway was patrolling north on Holiday Lane when he saw a white Chevrolet Tahoe and a check of the license plate number showed that it had been reported stolen in Pine Bluff.

The Tahoe was being driven by Hooks.

Akel said a search was conducted and officers found a grey case inside the backpack which was on the front passenger seat.
