LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR - A Louisiana man has been arrested in northeast Arkansas on drug charges.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) says Joe Holland, 22, of New Orleans, was taken to jail on Tuesday.

Deputies had stopped Holland for speeding near Hoxie. The LCSO says when officers spoke with Holland he was shaking and very nervous. When asked if he had any illegal substances in his vehicle, Holland told them he had some marijuana and showed it to them. 

Officers then searched the vehicle and found a plastic baggie with blotter paper containing LSD. The LCSO says officers also found drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle. 

Holland faces charges of speeding, possession of a controlled substance (LSD), possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
