Berea police arrested Jimmy Gadd, 39, Curtis Pike, Richmond, for operating on a suspended or revoked operator's license, giving an officer false identifying information, buying/possessing drug paraphernalia, trafficking in marijuana (more than 8 ounces, but less than five pounds) and license to be in possession Friday afternoon after officers noticed a vehicle that the police department had received complaints about in connection to drug trafficking.
