Five bags of syringes, 35 Oxycodone pills, brass knuckles, marijuana pipes, two spoons and two cell phones were seized by Murfreesboro Police during a traffic stop.
27-Year old Benjamin Frank Tucker was pulled over for a light violation on Gayle Lane at East Main Street Tuesday night. Police confirmed that he was not supposed to be driving due to a previous DUI conviction that restricted his driver's license. Police then found out that he had a past violation of probation for drugs. Officers asked to search his car and found numerous items that were all illegal.
As a result of the pills, brass knuckles and syringes being found in the car, both Tucker and his passenger 23 year old Bethany Joanna Carver were arrested. The two were charged with felony possession of a schedule two drug, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a legend drug and possession of a prohibited weapon (brass knuckles). The two are due in court this March.
As of Wednesday evening (1/6/16), both remain behind bars.
