FRANKLIN, LA (WAFB) - A 24-year-old man was arrested on synthetic drug charges during a traffic stop Tuesday night.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office said Sean Capak of Franklin was initially pulled over around 9:30 p.m. because his car had no brake lights.

Officials said when the deputy approached Capak he appeared nervous, causing the deputy to get suspicious.

They reported Capak gave consent to be searched and a pack of synthetic cannibinoids was found in his pocket.

It was also discovered there was a warrant for his arrest.

Capak was booked into the parish prison on the following charges:

Possession of synthetic cannibinoids

Abuse of toxic vapors

Brake lights required

Warrant for failure to appear from St. Martin Parish

SMPSO said no bond was set.

He was later taken to St. Martin Parish on the warrant.
