The Messenger. 10.8.07
Drug-related charges were levied against three people following two separate incidents in Union City late last week.
Gabriel Clemons, 32, of 515 Waddell St., Union City, was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance (cocaine) and possession of drug paraphernalia when he was arrested at 2:12 p.m. Thursday on Clover Street in Union City, according to a Union City Police Department report.
Shortly after 2 p.m., police had stopped a vehicle in the 200 block of North Clover Street due to an informant’s tip that a driver was allegedly in possession of cocaine. Upon stopping the vehicle, police identified the driver as Clemons. A search of a wallet found in one of his pockets yielded two folded dollar bills. When they were opened, it was discovered that the bills contained an off-white substance believed to be cocaine. One of them also contained a small straw, police reported.
In a separate incident Friday, Timothy Dwayne Poyner, 38, of Hickman, Ky., was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and Charles T. McDaniel, 33, of 776 Goodgoin Road, Clinton, Ky., with casual exchange following an incident about 6:50 p.m. on the parking lot of Obion Farmer’s Co-Op at 800 Mount Zion Road in Union City.
Police had observed a vehicle parked on the Co-Op parking lot and noticed two men sitting in the vehicle, which had Lake County tags. An officer made contact with the two men and asked if everything was OK. The driver, identified as Poyner, told police they were just waiting for his partner’s ride. Police reported they observed the driver reach under his seat and it appeared he was hiding something. An officer also reported that the driver appeared to be nervous, according to the report.
After receiving consent to search the vehicle, police recovered a clear bag that contained five pills from under the driver’s seat. Police were told that the pills were hydrocodone.
Poyner told police he had received the pills from his passenger, identified as McDaniel, according to a police report. McDaniel allegedly admitted to having given Poyner the pills from his valid prescription bottle, resulting in the charge against him.
