Two men, ages 40 and 20, of Magnolia Drive, are facing various drug charges after a stop by Murfreesboro Police.
Jeffrey Phipps and Justin Jackson were stopped by Officer Cory Schalburg last Wednesday at I-24 and South Church Street at nearly 4pm for a tag violation.
The officer reports the driver, Jackson and Phipps, who was a passenger in the vehicle, both appeared to be extremely nervous. Jackson was searched by the officer, who discovered a dollar that was rolled up and taped on the ends, with power residue inside.
That prompted a search by Murfreesboro Police K-9 Officer Ruger. Authorities found over 17-and-a-half grams of heroin, a half a gram of meth and a bag containing 89 Xanax bars.
A dollar short of 24-hundred dollars was allegedly found in the front pocket of Phipps and stashed in the vehicle and there was a digital scale under the driver's seat.
Despite both men denying ownership of the narcotics, both were charged with manufacture, delivery, sale and possession of Schedule one, two and four drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to the police report, Phipps later admitted to part ownership of the narcotics and that he frequently sold from his Dodge Charger, which was also seized.
