Placeholder Image

A man has been charged with an assortment of crimes after he led police on a foot chase for several blocks.
The suspect, Bobby Ray Graves, 30, is charged with evading arrest, promoting the manufacture of meth, simple possession of meth and legend drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He will face hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke on June 18.
Graves was arrested after police came to his house on Patterson Street to investigate a domestic call. After breaking up the disturbance, police noticed Graves was acting nervous. He also asked for police to turn off his vehicle which he had left running outside.
It was when they obliged that Lt. Mark Mara found a bag of pills in plain view on the console of his vehicle.
“Mr. Graves ran out the back door of the residence,” said patrolman Jared Jacobs in his warrant. “After a lengthy foot pursuit spanning Patterson, Caldwell and Mullican streets, I was able to take him into custody.”
A subsequent search of his house netted several items of drug paraphernalia. More evidence was found on his person once they got him to jail. The items included meth and pills.
Police conducted a further check on Graves and discovered he had made three purchases of psudoephedrine in five days, suggesting he was using the pills for the manufacture of meth. The record of his purchases was found in the Tennessee Methamphetamine Registry database which is used to catch meth suppliers.
