Tip leads to arrest in drug investigation
A tip received in the wake of a car crash resulted in the launch of a drug investigation Monday and the arrest of two Lawrenceburg residents.
Reports filed through the Lawrenceburg Police Department indicate that officers had worked an automobile accident from which they ultimately received the tip. In response, they spoke with residents of Canter Chase Apartments at 1105 Clearview Avenue.
Officers report detecting a strong odor of marijuana before entering the apartment. They report that resident Marcus Byers, age 46, admitted that he had smoked marijuana approximately twenty minutes prior to their arrival. He told officers that he was on parole and that there was no marijuana inside his home.
Officers gained consent to search the apartment and report finding items of contraband throughout the apartment. They seized a plastic bag containing 11 ounces of marijuana, glass pipes, two small bags containing methamphetamine with a combined weight of 7.7 grams, and an alprazolam pill. Marijuana residue was found inside of a 1999 Buick LeSabre at the residence.
It was subsequently seized due to the fact that officers believed it was “used for the facilitation of marijuana sales.” A total of $1,537 in cash, believed to be the proceeds of illegal drug sales, was also seized along with cell phones on which officers reported finding drug-related messages.
A female at the residence, who initially identified herself as Kali King, claimed ownership of most of the contraband. As the investigation progressed, she told officers that her name was actually Annora Rose Robinson, age 20, and that there were active warrants against her in Lawrence, Giles, and Davidson Counties.
Both Byers and Robinson were placed under arrest and transported to the Lawrence County Detention Center. Byers was booked under charges of possession of marijuana for the purpose of resale and possession of drug paraphernalia, with bond set at $22,000.
Robinson was booked on charges of possession of marijuana for the purpose of resale, possession of Schedule II narcotics (meth), possession of drug paraphernalia, and criminal impersonation. Her bond was set at $26,000.
Both Byers and Robinson were scheduled an initial General Sessions court date of April 6, 2017.
