Martin woman arrested on multiple charges

On Jan. 18 at 11:31 p.m., Deputy Seth Callens with the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department observed an older model Chevrolet Tahoe traveling north on North Lindell Street with expired tags.

The driver, 38-year-old Cassie Harrison, had two active warrants out of Weakley County and was also suspended out of Tennessee for failure to appear.

Harrison was placed into custody and Callens advised that he could smell marijuana coming from inside her vehicle to which Harrison responded that she had just left someone’s house who smokes marijuana.

Callens conducted a probable cause search and discovered two white pills with the imprint TV 53 in a pink container inside of her purse in the passenger seat along with a black shooter straw with white residue on the inside.

The two pills were later identified as Buspirone Hydrochloride, a prescription drug that Harrison did not have a prescription for.

Harrison also had a used needle in her eyeglass case and stated that her friend uses needles.

Harrison was charged with violation of registration law, financial responsibility, possession of legend drugs without prescription, driving on suspended second offense and possession of drug paraphernalia.

DISCLOSER: Information obtained came from the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department affidavit provided by Deputy Seth Callens.
