While investigating a crash on Wednesday afternoon, an officer with the Mt. Juliet Police Department found heroin hidden in a flashlight after the driver gave consent to have her car searched.

At around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday, officers were dispatched to investigate a non-injury crash involving two cars on South Mt. Juliet Road near Providence Marketplace.

After being granted consent to search one of the vehicles, the officer located a flashlight in the center console. Upon removing the flashlight's battery cap, the officer discovered two small baggies containing heroin. Further investigation revealed that the heroin belonged to a passenger in the vehicle, who was identified as 34-year-old Timothy Lankford of Nashville.

According to the MJPD, Lankford admitted to officers that he was engaged in activity related to the sale of heroin. He was arrested and booked into the Wilson County Jail, charged with possession of a Schedule I drug with intent for resale. He is set to appear in court on July 9 under a $20,000 bond.
