Two Michigan men were arrested Friday for possession of marijuana and heroin.
Timothy Keith Cribbs, 59, of Detroit, and Larry Oneal Walker, 21, of Harrison Township, Michigan, were both arrested by the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office for possession of Schedule VI drugs for resale and manufacturing, delivery and sale of Schedule I and II drugs.
Cribbs was also charged with violation of move over law and violation of financial responsibility.
According to a report filed by Deputy Hunter Clay Jones, of the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office, Jones was stopped on the right shoulder of U.S. Highway 11W near Surgoinsville with his rear red, blue and amber lights activated.
A 2006 Hyundai Tuscon, driven by Cribbs, that was traveling east in the right lane failed to change lanes for Jones’ emergency lights. Jones followed the vehicle to the U.S. 11W at South Central Avenue intersection in Church Hill where Jones made a traffic stop.
When interviewing Cribbs, Jones smelled marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. Jones asked Cribbs for his driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance.
Cribbs provided the license and registration, but failed to provide proof of insurance. Jones then asked for Walker’s identification and he consented.
After Cribbs consented to a vehicle search, deputies found a small bag of “Runtz” marijuana in the passenger side floorboard.
Another vacuum bag with seven additional bags of “Runtz” was found under the passenger’s side floor carpet. Total weight of the marijuana was 53.6 grams.
After both men were arrested, the vehicle was towed to Hill Top Towing in Surgoinsville.
An additional search was performed by Detectives Gary Lawson and Zachary England, both of the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office.
Another vacuum sealed bag in a passenger side compartment containing 3.90 grams of cocaine and heroin was also discovered.
