Murfreesboro Police pulled a man over who they described as "shaking very badly" when he got out of the car. The officer noted in the report that he had previously arrested the subject on drug charges before.
34-Year old Casey Lewis gave officers consent to search his car after police learned that he had a Nashville warrant for "Violation of Probation." Prior to being placed in the back of the patrol car for the warrant, Lewis was told by police to call the registered owner of the car to come pick it up. He told officers that he did call and that she would be there in 15-minutes. When she failed to show up, it was decided that the car should be towed away. Minutes later, the tow truck showed up at the same time as the car owner. The owner told police they could search the vehicle.
In the car, police found a large amount of marijuana in the center console. Seeing as how marijuana is currently illegal in Tennessee and all surrounding states, Lewis also got into trouble for the weed. The Kroger sack of marijuana was seized by the authorities.
To make matters worse for the 34-year old Murfreesboro resident, he was currently out on bond for "Felony Possession of a Schedule VI drug" and "Tampering with Evidence." Police also seized the cell phone belonging to Lewis and are currently seeking a warrant to look through the phone. He was also charged with "Felony Possession of a Schedule VI drug" for a second time.
