JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County Sheriff’s Det. Sgt. Deputy Gary Jeffers and Deputy James McCall recently saw a white Ford Fusion fail to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Clear Lake Drive and McDeerman Rd. in Jacksboro.
On Saturday, June 5, just before 4:30pm, Jeffers stopped the Ford and requested the driver provide her driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance. The woman, 31- year- old Leandra Nicole Perry of La Follette, was unable to provide proof of insurance, but she did give Jeffers a driver’s license. A check of the license revealed it was revoked for failure to comply with financial responsibility, according to a report from the Sheriff’s Department. A check of the vehicle’s registration revealed it was expired, but the vehicle had registration stickers dated 12/2021. The expiration sticker allegedly belonged to another vehicle, a 1999 red GMC Jimmy, owned by someone other than Perry. She denied having any knowledge as to how the expiration sticker issued to the Jimmy was placed on her registration.
Perry was placed under arrest. Prior to towing, the Ford Fusion was inventoried. During the inventory, rolling papers and a grinder were found in the center console with the odor of marijuana coming from it, according to the report.
Upon arrival at the jail, Perry was searched by a corrections office. The officer found a Tylenol inside Perry’s waistband with a plastic baggie of tan powder inside believed to be Heroin.
Perry, of 401 East Beech Street, LaFollette was charged with violation registration law, driving while revoked, violation of TN financial law, violation registration law, unlawful display of a drivers license, possession of drug paraphernalia, altering/forging title or plates, possession of schedule I controlled substance and intro of contraband into a penal facility.
Jail records indicate that Perry is unemployed and was arrested for the fourth time. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/14/2021-6AM)
