On Dec. 1 around 8:02 p.m., Patrolman Joseph Bates with the Gleason Police Department, observed a black/gray in color Chevy truck traveling down West Street with a headlight out. Bates got behind the vehicle and activated his emergency equipment and pulled the vehicle over at 604 West Street.
Bates then made contact with the driver, 33-year-old Timothy Scott Hickey, and the passenger, Scott Hugueley. Hugueley was asked when the last time marijuana was in the vehicle, and he stated approximately “little over an hour ago.”
Both occupants were asked to step out of the truck so it could be searched. In the floorboard of the front passenger side was a black bag with miscellaneous items and among those items was a black plastic case with the letters “BAMF” on one side, which is a nickname that Hickey has been known to go by.
Inside the case Bates found .52 grams of methamphetamine in a plastic bag. Hickey was placed under arrest for possession of Schedule II and transported to Weakley County Jail.
