Traffic stop leads to felony drug charges against 2 from TN
Felony charges have been filed against two Shelbyville, Tenn., residents following a Dec. 20 traffic stop on Interstate 70 in Lafayette County.
According to a probable cause statement, a Lafayette County sheriff’s deputy conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle and found bags of marijuana weighing a total of nearly 3 pounds; a pipe containing burnt marijuana residue; a glass container with a small amount of hashish in it; a folded piece of paper with THC wax on it; and other drug-related items.
Unofficial online court documents say warrants have been issued. James D. Williams II, 26, and Kristen Cheyenne Woods, 21, have each been charged with a Class D Felony for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Except 35 Grams or Less of Marijuana, and a drug-related misdemeanor. Bond for each subject has been set at $15,000 cash or surety.
An initial hearing for each subject is pending at Lafayette County Circuit Court.
