Two people were arrested and charged with possession of cocaine for resale this week after an alleged faulty brake light prompted a traffic stop.
According to a report filed by deputy Andrew Coggin of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Travis Gill and Nancy Berry were traveling on APD 40 in a burgundy GMC Sonoma Tuesday evening.
Coggin noted the vehicle had only one working brake light and he made a traffic stop.
According to his report, Berry, who was the driver, appeared very nervous and was trembling.
Coggin asked consent to search the vehicle and found a cigarette container which had three bags of a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine, according to his report.
The container was located in a compartment in the driver’s side door.
Berry and Gill both denied knowledge of what the powdery substance was or who it belonged to.
Both were then placed into custody and transported to the Bradley County Jail where they were charged with possession of Schedule II narcotics for resale.
- A vehicle parked at a Valley View Road residence was burglarized, but nothing taken, according to a report filed by deputy Darren Miller.
Alan Bell said he arrived home and found his vehicle had been rummaged through.
Bell’s father-in-law stated he had seen a white male who appeared to be in his early 20s prowling around the Bell residence earlier.
The suspect was described as wearing a black shirt and red shorts.
A black shirt was found near the residence.
According to his report, the shirt was recovered and logged into evidence at the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.
