On Nov. 21 the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department, assisted by the Martin Police Department, served a search warrant at 323 Summer Street in Martin.

During the execution of the search warrant, three people were arrested. 23-year-old Colton Browning, Nathaniel Reeves and Jonathan Glisson.

Browning had approximately three blue pills, believed to be fentanyl in a baggie inside his pants pocket. There was also a pill bottle with no label found in Browning’s bedroom nightstand with several pills inside believed to be oxycodone. There was also approximately $1,135.00 found in the nightstand near the suspected oxycodone pills in small denominations, which the report stated was indicative of drug sales.

Browning was arrested and charged with possession of schedule II x 2 (Oxycodone and Fentanyl) with intent to sell. Browning also had a previous charge for manufacture, deliver, sale, possession with intent of methamphetamine on April 23, 2018 that he was serving probation for. Browning’s preliminary hearing has been set for Nov. 30 and he has retained Paul Hutcherson as his attorney.

During the execution of the search warrant, 19-year-old Nathaniel Cain Reeves met officers at the door in possession of a 45 pistol. Reeves stated that he didn’t hear deputies identifying themselves as law enforcement officers. Because of Reeves’ age, he is not able to lawfully possess a pistol. Officers found marijuana and paraphernalia in Reeves’ bedroom, which he claimed ownership of.

Reeves’ hearing is also set for Nov. 30. Reeves was charged with simple possession/casual exchange, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of unlawful paraphernalia and activities.

During the search of the house, a pill bottle with no label was found in 35-year-old Jonathan Glisson’s bedroom. The pills recovered were believed to be schedule II. Officers also found a loaded gun on the nightstand near the pills. There were also three blue pills found on a table in Glisson’s bedroom believed to be fentanyl.

Glisson’s hearing is also set for Nov. 30. Glisson was charged with simple possession/casual exchange, unlawful possession fo a weapon and possession of schedule II with intent to sell.
