Media Release

                                                Drugs Found On Traffic Stop


Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:


            On Thursday, May 1, 2014, Deputy Kody Oliver, while on patrol through the tornado damaged areas on county road 4 and county road 25 in the Aroney area, performed a traffic stop on a maroon pickup truck driven by Buffy Denise Rogers, 35, of Crossville.  Deputy Oliver saw indicators which led him to do a consented search of the vehicle.

 Deputy Oliver, who is one of the K-9 deputies for the Sheriff’s Office, took his K-9 around the vehicle who then alerted to the driver side door. After further investigation of the vehicle, Deputy Oliver found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. The on call drug task force officer was then notified.

 When Deputy Oliver attempted to arrest Rogers, she pulled away and resisted. She was then placed under arrest for unlawful possession of controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting arrest. Rogers is currently being held in the DeKalb County Detention Center awaiting bond.

 Sheriff Jimmy Harris says: “I’m proud of the work our deputies do. Because of Deputy Oliver’s watchful eye, he was able to take this person off the road before she could have been a danger to herself or others.”
