McAlister gave consent to search and during the search a small glass container with what appeared to be marijuana residue in it was found on the driver’s side in the door panel. At that time a passenger in the vehicle, Dennis Hodge (30 yrs old, from Perryville) spontaneously stated that the glass container was his and that he picked it up at a friends and he had washed it out. Hodges stated that he was going to give it to McAlister because she like the glass. Mr. Hodge’s was arrested and charged with possession of Drug Paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.
