Two individuals were indicted Friday for allegedly possessing heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine when the Warren County grand jury met for its monthly session.
According to the arrest warrant, Holly A. May, 39, and Jesse C. May, 37, were traveling in a gold Nissan on Highway 70 South in early May.
K-9 deputy Jared Jacobs observed the occupants of the vehicle acting suspiciously and discovered the tag to be expired since March of 2019. Deputy Jacobs became stuck in traffic and relayed the information to deputy Bristol Davis, who performed a traffic stop for an altered and expired license plate near Turner’s Auto Salvage on Nashville Highway.
The Sheriff’s Department report states Davis found the pair to be extremely nervous and showing numerous signs and indicators of illicit behavior. Consent to search the vehicle was denied, and K-9 deputy Jacobs deployed K-9 Ozzy to perform a free-air sniff of the vehicle.
Jacobs advised a positive K-9 indication to narcotics leading to a search of the vehicle. The search resulted in finding a container which contained approximately .25 to .5 grams of suspected heroin. Holly May claimed possession of the substance.
The warrant claims approximately .5 to 1 grams of suspected methamphetamine was located in the backpack of Jesse May. The backpack also contained 18 suspected Roxycodone tablets. A search of Jesse May’s person at Warren County Jail revealed approximately .5 grams of suspected cocaine.
The two will appear in court for the charges on Wednesday, Dec. 18 at 9 a.m.
