A Burton man was arrested Monday following a traffic stop in Bryan after, police say, drugs were found in his car.

According to Bryan police, an officer patrolling West 16th Street stopped a car driven by Michael Earl Moore, 28, at around 9:20 p.m. While speaking with Moore, the officer could smell marijuana, and Moore was shaking and appeared nervous, a report notes.
