Alleged meth found during traffic stop

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

A 2011 Honda Accord was seized and a suspect was taken into custody on Thursday after Dyersburg Police found alleged illegal drugs during a traffic stop.

Robert Bandon Riles, 32, 2705 Highway 104 West, is charged with possession of Schedule II (methamphetamine) substance.

Riles was pulled over by police at the intersection of Tucker Street and Lake Road as they conducted a traffic stop. After a search of car was conducted, police found two packs of pseudoephedrine pills in the glove box. Pseudoephedrine is commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Also found during the search was a clear plastic bottle containing .9 grams of a substance police believed to be meth. There were also seven coffee filters found, all of which tested positive for methamphetamine.

Riles is being held in the Dyer County Jail on a $15,000 bond. His next scheduled appearance in Dyersburg City Court is Friday, March 30.

In 2011, Riles was indicted by a Dyer County Grand Jury for sale of a controlled substance (Schedule II), possession with intent to sell/deliver methamphetamine in amount in excess of .5 grams in drug-free school zone, possession with intent to sell/deliver a controlled substance (Schedule II), and possession with intent to sell/deliver methamphetamine in amount in excess of .5 grams.

What does Highway 104 West have to do with it?

What law did he break to get pulled over in the first place? Or what was the basis of the traffic stop?

Who cares what he did to get pulled over? All someone had to do was call in on him and the police WILL pull him over and not be nice about it. I, personally, am not a fan of the DPD but I know Brandon and I know all about this drug. It's not just a danger to him, but a danger to everyone that's near the drug and it's users. It's a dangerous and mind-killing drug that effects more than just the users. But it takes more than just an arrest to make these people learn.
