JELLICO, TN (WLAF) – On Nov. 20, Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Shayne Wilburn responded to a call of two females passed out in a vehicle on Tipple Lane in Jellico. When Wilburn arrived, Campbell County EMS had already tended to the women. Wilburn got the ID’s of the females and had dispatch check them in both Kentucky and Tennessee. Dispatch notified Wilburn that both the driver and the passenger were ID only. A warrant check revealed no outstanding warrants on the duo.

The driver allegedly reported to Wilburn she had used Marijuana, Heroin and Methamphetamine within an hour or two of his arrival. The driver, identified as Tamera Kay Anderson, performed unsatisfactorily on field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest.
After placing Anderson in the patrol car, Wilburn returned to talk with the passenger in the vehicle. Wilburn told the passenger that Anderson would be going to jail and “this would be the best time to be honest due to the items found in the vehicle.” The passenger, identified as Jamie Nicole Rickett, allegedly admitted to using Heroin and Methamphetamine approximately an hour or two hours prior as well. While Wilburn was talking to Rickett, he could see a Red Bull can with Heroin stuck to the bottom of it. The passenger admitted the can belonged to her, according to Wilburn’s report.
