Martin man free on bond after drug arrest
A 19-year-old Martin man remains free on a $1,000 bond after he was arrested March 30 in the parking lot of MTD Products.
According to an incident report, Mitchell Poyner of Hyndsver Road was taken into custody that afternoon when a drug dog allegedly alerted to a ‘97 Ford Thunderbird driven by Poyner.
The report cites Union City K-9 Officer Brandon Adams and his canine BROK conducted a sweep of the parking lot at the Martin factory.
BROK apparently alerted to Poyner’s vehicle and a search revealed approximately 48 grams of a green, leafy substance thought to be marijuana, according to the report.
A digital scale and three individual baggies containing varying amounts of marijuana were also allegedly uncovered during the search.
The 19-year-old was taken into custody by the Martin Police Department and charged with possession of Schedule VI with intent and unlawful drug paraphernalia.
Poyner’s vehicle was seized by the MPD.
He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Weakley County General Sessions Court at 8:30 a.m. on May 19.
He is free on bond and represented by Weakley County Assistant Public defender Colin Johnson.
WCP 4.13.10
