"It's bitter," a man who admitted eating a small container of methamphetamine - plastic bag and all - described its taste to a Bedford County deputy.
Matthew Thomas Vincent, 44, of Bugscuffle Road allegedly swallowed approximately 1 gram as he was being detained following a traffic stop Friday on Madison Street.
Vincent, who has been convicted in the past of manufacturing methamphetamine, allegedly said he uses 1 to 5 grams daily. A search of his truck revealed scales covered with crystal methamphetamine but no appreciable amounts of the substance itself.
Vincent denied ownership of the scales, found after a Shelbyville police dog sniffed the truck.
Charges of tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia were filed against Vincent, who was held on $5,000 bond.
Two people were charged Friday with a burglary on Wednesday at a North Main Street vape shop.
Timothy Dale Crawford Jr,, 18, of Dover Street, and a teenage boy allegedly took several items from Big Times Vape, according to Shelbyville police.
A chunk of concrete was used to break both front door glass and a glass counter inside, a report said.
Crawford is charged with burglary, vandalism, theft of property under $1,000, criminal impersonation and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He posted $20,000 bond.
Marijuana and a "white powder substance" were found on a suspect who allegedly falsely claimed someone had been shot Saturday morning at Bedford Manor Apartments, Barksdale Lane, according to police.
Kenneth Shondale Mason, 46, of Nashville allegedly smelled of marijuana and, as a relative told police, had been "acting erratically" and was ordered to leave their home.
Mason was charged with filing a false report, simple possession of schedule II and VI drugs and paraphernalia for his alleged actions Saturday along with previous warrants for evading arrest, driving on a revoked license (fourth offense) and joyriding. He was held on $25,000 bond.
A woman identified as Shania Ellis was charged with possession of schedule I and VI drugs and paraphernalia after allegedly overdosing in a Madison Street parking lot on Friday.
Officers Letisia Diaz and Brad Evans administered NARCAN after she stopped breathing, a report said. A companion, who was not charged, said they had bought a THC blunt from a store in Dickson and stopped in the parking lot only because she was familiar with the area from work.
Bags containing fentanyl, marijuana and scales were found in the women's van.
Ellis was admitted to Vanderbilt Bedford Hospital for treatment, police said.
A driver who allegedly struck a house Friday afternoon on U,S, 231 North faces multiple charges.
Adam Wayne Faulk, 32, of Scotland Heights denied witnesses' accounts, police said, but damage to his vehicle matched damage to the residence. Faulk was charged with a seventh offense of driving on a revoked license, financial responsibility (no proof of insurance), leaving the scene of and failing to report an accident, and violation of probation. He was held on $11,000 bond.
A man who has been convicted 10 times for driving without a license picked up charge No. 11 Saturday night when he was stopped for allegedly running a stop sign and speeding into the parking lot of a Madison Street liquor store.
Dustin Ray Bain, 34, of Bradyville told an officer warrants were out for his arrest and he didn't want to go to jail. Bain did, where he was being held on $5,000 bond Monday.
Two or four men robbed a man of his shoes and phone as he "hung out" in front of Sherwood Court mailboxes Saturday night, he told police.
The victim, Terry Mooningham Jr., was found on Madison Street holding the shoes, which he said he'd gotten back. The suspects were described initially as four Hispanic males and later as possibly two Black males.
Mooningham was arrested for public intoxication Sunday night after an East Depot Street resident reported he was hiding in bushes and began banging on the door of a business yelling for someone to open the door.
A wallet lost by a customer Sunday at Walmart was found with $60 of a total $200 missing, police were told.
