Cannon County Sheriff Darrell Young made a traffic stop of a suspicious vehicle on private property on Nov. 28. Deputy Eric Moss arrived on scene to assist in the investigation.
Upon arrival, Deputy Moss spoke with two females. One was Amanda Arnold, the owner of the vehicle, a red Nissan truck. The other was Nicole Muncey.
Deputy Moss asked both Arnold and Muncey if they had any narcotics on their person or in the vehicle. They said they did not. Arnold consented to a search of the vehicle.
Sheriff Young asked the women if they had anything illegal in their pockets. Muncey pulled out a cigarette pack with a marijuana cigarette inside.
Deputy Moss then began searching the vehicle. He found two baggies containing approximately six grams of marijuana, one rolled marijuana cigarette, six partially smoked marijuana cigarettes, one bag containing approximately .35 grams of methamphetamine, a bottle containing 13 Seroquel pills and 12 Alprazolam pills, two packs of rolling papers, two pipes and a piece of aluminum foil.
All of the items were found inside a brown purse. Muncey stated the purse was hers. Muncey also stated that marijuana was her drug of preference and that it had been a week since she had used methamphetamine.
Sheriff Young did a warrants check on the two women and was informed by Cannon County Dispatch that Coffee County had an active warrant for Muncey for shoplifting.
Arnold was released. No charges were filed against her.
Muncey was arrested and charged with Possession of Schedule II drugs, Possession of Schedule IV drugs, Possession of Schedule VI drugs, Possession of a Legend drug and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Her bond was set at $12,700 and a hold was placed on her for Coffee County. Initial court date is Feb. 7.
