JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County Sheriff’s Sergeant Nathaniel Bostic saw a maroon Ford F-150 pick-up truck driving in the middle of Hatmaker Ridge Road on the afternoon of Thursday, September 10. Bostic stopped the truck and spoke with the driver identified as Summer N. King. When Bostic told her why he stopped her, she replied that she did want to get to close to the edge of the road due to the size of the vehicle. Bostic noticed the passenger of the vehicle, Carla Leann Siler, and was familiar with her. That’s due to a prior encounter where Siler had a large quantity of illegal drugs on her, according to a report from the Sherriff’s Office.
Bostic asked both women to step out of the pick-up. At this point, the sergeant was joined by Narcotics Agent Matt Forsyth of the 8th Judicial Task Force. Bostic’s K-9, Santo, was deployed for an exterior sniff of the vehicle, and he alerted to the vehicle. The duo was joined CCSO Deputy James McCall and assisted in a probable cause search of the vehicle.
