LEIGHTON, Ala. (AP) - Police in Leighton say a Lauderdale County man was arrested after officers found methamphetamine in his shoes during a traffic stop.

Leighton Police Chief Brandon Hood tells the TimesDaily newspaper (https://bit.ly/1zfTnMY ) 34-year-old Paul Richard Willis of Florence faces charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hood says Willis was a passenger in a car that was stopped for speeding. Hood says Willis tried to kick his shoes off and kick them under the car after the driver gave officers permission to search the car. When he did that, Hood said, meth fell out of Willis’ shoes.

Willis was being held without bond in the Colbert County jail. It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.
