You have probably heard the saying, “birds of a feather flock together.” A Greek philosopher by the name of Democritus coined the phrase that is still quite relevant today. Two women, both wanted for violating their probation, were apprehended together over this past Labor Day weekend.
A Milton woman pulled over because her license plate was not properly illuminated as required by law allegedly told Murfreesboro police she did not have her I-D with her. When police asked the woman to step out of the car they noticed a wallet sitting in the center console. The wallet evidently belonged to the passenger who was wanted by police for violating her probation.
When officers asked passenger Emily Lee Faulkner what was in the bulging wallet she said, “Nothing” while allegedly removing an object and placing it into her bra. That object turned out to be two small bags of cocaine. Police wrote in the report, “Ms. Faulkner stated she had purchased the cocaine for fifty dollars and was going to sell it for sixty dollars.” Therefore, Faulkner was charged with possession with the intent to resale.
As for the driver of the vehicle, she was charged with driving on a suspended license, served a warrant for violating her probation and criminal impersonation. Clarissa D. Douglas, who is 19-years of age, will be in court on November 6 along with her passenger who was arrested with her when stopped on the Old Salem Highway near West Castle Street.
As of Tuesday night at 9pm, Faulkner and Douglas were both still behind bars.

Birds of a feather flock together means: Similar people tend to associate with each other.
