Lebanon police confiscated more than $5,000 in cash, two weapons and over two ounces of marijuana Saturday morning after responding to a road rage call on Interstate 40 near Highway 109.

According to a news release issued by the Lebanon Police Department, after being notified of an armed subject engaged in an act of road rage, LPD officers located a vehicle that matched the description of the suspect vehicle at Uncle Pete's Truck Stop on Sparta Pike.

The driver was identified as Edwin Secoy Reeves, 27, of Hermitage. Officers reported finding a 9mm pistol in Reeves' waistband and, during a consent search, Reeves told police he had a small amount of marijuana in a backpack located in the trunk of the vehicle. Police discovered "about" a quarter-ounce of pot in the backpack, according to the news release.

"In a separate part of the same backpack, a bag containing about 1.9 ounces of marijuana was found, along with a loaded Uzi pistol. In addition, there was $4,370 in bundled cash," the release read. "Reeves also had $811 in his pants pocket. Cash totaling $5,181 was seized."

Reeves was arrested and charged with felony drug charges, felony weapons charges and reckless endangerment of a minor, as there was a two-year-old child in the vehicle at the time of Reeves' arrest.
