Though Caryville Police Officer Daniel Garrett is new to the CPD Force, he is not new to law enforcement.  He is a nine-year law enforcement veteran.

On Sunday, Garrett, conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of Hwy 25W and Elkins Road, near the stop light, due to a registration violation.     After checking the status of the car’s four occupants, Garrett was advised that two of the occupants had active warrants in Campbell County.   Jimmy Jenkins and Zackory Harmon both had capias bench warrants.

Campbell County Deputy Courtney Charles arrived on scene to assist Garrett. During the process of making the arrests, Garrett noticed what appeared to be a glass tube, with broken glass, laying in the floor board as Harmon got out of the car.

After detaining both defendants,  Garrett spoke with the driver who then gave permission to search the car. Along with the pipe, were two digital scales with the appearance of meth residue. While conducting the search,  Charles found a Dr. Pepper can that contained a bag inside.

CCSD Deputies John Minor, Travis Bostic and K-9 Santo soon arrived and assisted in the search. Garrett proceeded to cut the can open recovering two bags that contained approximately 2.25 grams of methamphetamine combined.  The 22-year- old Harmon claimed all drugs and drug paraphernalia were his.

Harmon, from La Follette, was charged with capias bench warrant, possession of schedule II Meth for sale, drug free school zone, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence-two counts, and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. Harmon, who has a May 23 court date, remains housed in the Campbell County Jail this morning without bond and is expected to be arraigned this morning.

Jenkins, 48 of La Follette, was released from the Campbell County Jail on Sunday morning.  He has a $10,000 secured bond.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/06/2019-6AM)
