JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Gary Jeffers recently saw a silver Volkswagen Jetta traveling at the bottom of the Wal-Mart parking lot. Jeffers knew there was a BOLO (be on the lookout for) issued for the vehicle stemming from an altercation in Caryville.
It was in the predawn hours of Oct. 27 when Jeffers noticed the windshield of the vehicle was cracked in the center and the driver’s side of the glass was obstructing the view of the driver. When Jeffers pulled in behind the Jetta, the driver quickly turned left into the parking rows and then went into the side parking lot of the store. According to a report from the sheriff’s department, Jeffers turned and came around the opposite side of the building and found the vehicle in the side parking lot with all of the occupants still inside.
Jeffers was soon joined by CCSO Det. Joe Hopson and Det. Travis Bostic. Jeffers parked and approached the vehicle while Hopson began speaking with the driver, Patrick Henderson about the prior altercation at Caryville. While Jeffers was checking Henderson’s license status, vehicle registration and warrants, he requested CCSO Det. David Wormsley to come to the scene with K-9 Daisy. During Daisy’s open air stiff, she alerted on the car.
A search of Henderson’s Volkswagon allegedly revealed an orange pill bottle with two plastic baggies inside containing approximately 13.8 grams of a crystal substance believed to be Methamphetamine in one bag and 0.8 grams of Methamphetamine in the other baggie. Also, inside the bottle was a ½ blue stick thought to be Xanax, 27 round white pills, possibly Trihexyphenidyl Hydrochloride, a prescription only medication. Multiple straws, pipes and hypodermic syringes were also allegedly located in the vehicle. Henderson’s driver license was found to be suspended, and he was unable to provide proof of financial responsibility.
Henderson, 36, 1332 Sumac Drive, Knoxville, was charged with violation of TN financial law, other, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while suspended, revoked or cancelled driver’s license, manufacture sell or delivery of Methamphetamine, possession of schedule IV controlled substance and possession without a prescription.
Henderson is scheduled to return to court Thursday. He remains housed in the Campbell County Jail this morning without bond. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/08/2022-6AM)
