Two men were arrested on drug charges by the Sheriff's Department Friday, August 6th after being stopped for a traffic violation on Highway 70.
34 year old Robert Douglas Tedrow of Hiwassee Road, Lebanon and 30 year old Mark William Green of Stoutown Road, Blaine Tennessee are each charged with manufacture of a schedule II drug (methamphetamine), simple possession of a schedule II drug (cocaine), and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond for each is $28,500 and they will be in court on August 19th. Tedrow was also issued a citation for violation of the seat belt law.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says after stopping Tedrow's vehicle for the traffic offense, the deputy walked up to the vehicle and noticed a two liter bottle on the back floor board. The bottle contained a milky substance. Suspecting that the men had components of a shake and bake meth lab in the vehicle, the officer asked for and received consent to search. In the vehicle, the deputy found a blue bag with a spoon wrapped in plastic that contained a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine. Five used needles were also found along with other components used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Meanwhile in another case, 25 year old Scotty Randall Hendrixson of McMinnville was charged on Friday August 6th with driving on a suspended license. He was also issued a citation for violation of the financial responsibility law (no insurance) and violation of the vehicle registration law for having the wrong tags on his vehicle.. Sheriff Ray says a deputy responded to an accident with property damage on New Home Road in Dowelltown. A computer check of his drivers license revealed they were suspended for failure to satisfy a citation in Warren County earlier this year. He also had Cannon County charges against him from cases in 2008. His bond totals $2,000 and his court date is August 25th.
48 year old Virginia Kay Jones of Holloway Road, Smithville was named in a grand jury sealed indictment last week for TennCare Fraud. She was arrested on Thursday, August 5th. Her bond is $2,500 and she will appear for arraignment in criminal court on August 16th.
