Traffic stop leads to meth bust
Two suspects will appear before Dyer County General Sessions Court Judge Jason Hudson on meth charges after a Dyer County Sheriff's deputy found alleged meth and the tools to manufacture the drug during a traffic stop.
Logan Rose, 25, Dyersburg, Tenn., and Brian Robertson, 21, 296 Field Road, Dyersburg, Tenn., were both charged with promotion of methamphetamine manufacture.
Dyer County Sheriff's Sgt. Danny Petrie performed a traffic stop on Dec. 8 after observing a traffic violation of the driver of a green car. The driver, Rose, did not have his license after stating to Petrie that it was suspended. Petrie searched Rose and his passenger, Robertson, and then the vehicle after gaining consent from Rose.
A search of the vehicle revealed a backpack containing numerous items used in the manufacturing of meth, including a gas generator and lithium batteries.
Petrie also found a bag of alleged meth and charged Robertson with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance. The two were arrested and taken to the Dyer County Jail where Robertson has remained on a $15,000 bond and Rose on an $8,000 bond.
