MADISONVILLE-A Vonore area man was
arrested on drug charges Monday after the car he was in was pulled
over for speeding.
Madisonville Police Detective Daniel
Dockery said he saw a car doing 50 mph on New Highway 68 near Warren
Street and found the driver to be Gordon Haynes, but it was the
passenger that caught his attention.
Dockery said as he was talking to the
driver, the passenger, Don Wayne Giles, 45, Highway 360, Vonore, had
shaking hands and appeared to be nervous.
Dockery asked Giles to get out of the
car and asked if he had anything illegal on him. Giles said he didn't
and Dockery asked if he could search him. Giles put his hands in his
pockets and said he had a knife.
Dockery told him to take his hand out
of his pocket and when Giles did so, he allegedly dropped a black box
on the ground and threw something else across Highway 68.
Dockery said he heard something break
across the highway and put Giles in handcuffs. He opened the black
box and found six baggies containing a white powder thought to be
methamphetamine. He then went across the road and found a broken
glass pipe where Giles had thrown the object, according to the arrest
Dockery said the suspected meth weighed
approximately 2 grams and looked like it was packaged for resale.
Giles was arrested and charged with
possession of methamphetamine for resale, tampering with evidence and
possession of drug paraphernalia.
