Deputies arrest 3 after finding materials to make meth inside motel

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Three suspects are behind bars after Dyer County Sheriff's deputies found materials used to make meth and the drug itself inside a motel room along Highway 51 Bypass in Dyersburg.

Jada Gean, 25, 115 Redbell Road, Dyersburg, Tenn.; Kenneth Pollock, 28, 329 Reynolds Ave., Dyersburg, Tenn., and Kimberly Stone, 39, 1019 Merriman St., Dyersburg, Tenn. are charged with initiation methamphetamine process and possession of a Schedule II (meth) controlled substance.

On Tuesday, Dyer County Sheriff's Inv. Stoney Hughes received information the suspects were in room #234 at the Economy Inn in Dyersburg and were preparing to cook meth. Hughes, along with Dyer County Sheriff's Lt. Ken Simpson and Cpl. Adam Fisher arrived at the room and noticed the door was open. Inside the room were all three suspects. Upon seeing the officers, Pollock got off of an air mattress and reportedly tried to enter the bathroom. He was instructed not to go into the bathroom and asked to step outside. Stone and Gean also went outside and spoke with the officers. Stone allowed Hughes to search her and he found lithium batteries and Ziplock bags inside a sweatshirt pocket. Stone reportedly told Hughes she had woken up and they were under her shirt and she put them in her pocket. Inside the room, Hughes noticed coffee filters on the floor and Stone stated she did not know where they came from. Coffee filters are commonly found with other items used in the production of meth.

Gean consented to a search of her vehicle in which no contraband was found and she and Pollock were allowed to leave the scene. Hughes was able to obtain a search warrant for the room and Stone was also allowed to leave since they had no charges against her at the time. Fisher remained at the room until Hughes was able to execute the search warrant. Inside the room, Hughes found numerous items used in the production of meth including, a bag weighing approximately 20 grams of crushed pseudoephedrine pills, digital scales, a box of aluminum foil, lighter fluid, coffee filters (with no coffee maker inside the room), tubing, and ammonium nitrate.

There was also a small bag found that contained approximately half a gram of alleged meth.

Warrants were drawn up for the arrest of the suspects and deputies on the second shift were able to locate them and take them into custody. Pollock also received an additional charge of resisting arrest. After their initial appearance in Dyer County General Sessions Court, Stone was given a bond of $15,000, while Gean and Pollock received $30,000 bonds. Their next court date is Jan. 14.

Crime Stoppers of Dyer County paid a reward for information that led to the arrest of all three suspects.

It's from all the in-breeding... Just look at these people... What a joke... They're all the same... Bunch of low-life, white trash,in-bred turds... What do you expect??? Hey lets give them more wel-fare, that will fix the problem...

Put their sorry A$$ out on a chain gang cleaning out ditches in the rain and cold... Give them a reason not to do this crap... Oh, wait... this is cruel and un-usual treatment. We deserve every bit of this trouble...
