A Union City woman has been arrested after she went to the Obion County Sheriff’s Department to claim that marijuana found in the possession of Jerome Lee Barnett, 31, of 206 Nash St., Union City, on Sunday was actually hers.
Lacey Nicole Quinn, 22, of 529 Nash St., No. 84, Union City, told police Barnett was driving her car, where the eight bags of marijuana were stored in the ash tray. She said he apparently took the bags with him when he ran from police.
Barnett was arrested in the 1400 block of Old Troy Road after fleeing arrest. He was found to be in possession of one bag of marijuana and seven others were found along the path where he ran.
Barnett was charged with possession of Schedule VI marijuana and evading arrest.
Ms. Quinn was charged with possession of Schedule VI marijuana and accessory after the fact.
