STINKING CREEK, TN (WLAF) – In a release from the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office, it’s reported that a Pioneer woman was arrested on Wednesday night on multiple charges. On Wed., May 20, around 8 pm, Campbell County Deputy John Minor was completing routine patrol in the Stinking Creek area of Campbell County. While on patrol, Deputy Minor observed a vehicle driving erratically by failing to maintain control of the driving lane. The deputy identified the driver as Connie Borck of Pioneer. He noticed the driver was acting very nervous, had the appearance of blood shot eyes and was visibly shaking. The driver admitted that she only possessed a learner’s permit and not a valid driver’s license. The driver was also unable to provide proof of insurance.
While Deputy Minor completed field sobriety tests on the driver, Corporal Wayne Barton and K-9 Mya arrived on scene. The K-9 soon alerted on the passenger door of the vehicle. That’s when the driver admitted that a large amount of marijuana was concealed in a red bag behind the seat of the vehicle. The bag contained a large amount of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana. Upon weighing of the substance, the weight exceeded the amount to constitute a felony in the State of Tennessee. The driver admitted that she had driven to Dayton, Ohio, to obtain the marijuana in which she intended to resell.
Connie Borck, age 59, of Lonesome Mountain Lane of Pioneer, was charged with felony possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to maintain lane and violation of the driver license’s law. She was transported to the Campbell County Jail and was released on a $10,000 bond on Thursday. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/22/2020-6AM)
