CLAIRFIELD, TN (WLAF) – An outstanding warrant and an observant deputy sent two men to jail. Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher West was traveling on Highway 90, Clairfield and saw a white Chevy Tahoe leaving a home. West saw that Tony Monday was a passenger in the vehicle, and he was aware Monday had a violation of probation warrant out of criminal court.
Just before 5 pm on Friday, April 9, West stopped the SUV in the driveway of the residence and asked Monday to step out of the vehicle. When Monday stepped out of the Chevy, he was placed under arrest. While searching Monday, the deputy found an unknown amount of schedule II controlled substance in his front pocket along with drug paraphernalia. West also found drug paraphernalia in Monday’s front pocket along with unknown amount of schedule I controlled substance in Monday’s wallet, according to a report from the sheriff’s department.
After Monday was put in the patrol car, West spoke with driver of the Tahoe who was identified as Trenedy Junior Reed. While speaking with Reed, he noticed his speech to be slurred, and he was barely able to keep his eyes open. Inside the SUV was an unknown amount of schedule VI controlled substance in the passenger seat that belonged to Monday. Also found were several drug paraphernalia items throughout the Tahoe that Reed claimed ownership. West then found a felonious amount of schedule II controlled substance with intent to manufacture, deliver and/or resale located under the driver’s seat. When questioned about the ownership of the drugs, Reed allegedly told West that he found them. Reed alerted the deputy to a loaded handgun between the driver’s seat and the console. West noticed that the serial numbers were scratched off of the handgun.
While transporting the duo to the jail, West noticed Reed’s speech to worsen with slurs and his eyes to be closed most of the time while attempting to talk to West. Upon arrival at the jail, West spoke with Monday who alleged that Reed seemed intoxicated. Reed was given a field sobriety test which he failed.
