Two men arrested Friday night on drug-related charges remained in jail on Tuesday and are slated to appear in court on Jan. 7, 2014.
Lebanon Police arrested the two men, and also a third individual, following a traffic stop by Burger King on North Cumberland Street. A fourth person was released by officers at the scene.
According to police reports, the 1998 black Toyota Corolla was stopped after it was determined that registration on the vehicle belonged to a 1999 red Dodge Avenger. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Brandon Michael Jennings, 27, of Watertown. The automobile contained two passengers, Danny Lamar Vick, 42, of Lebanon and Candas Boatwright, 31, of LaVergne.
Officer Eric Gray reported that during the course of the vehicle search, Jennings was reportedly found to be in possession of .5 grams of suspected Schedule II crack cocaine and admitted it on the scene.
Officer Chris Luna discovered five coffee filters with white powdery residue, suspected Schedule II methamphetamine and other items consistent with manufacturing methamphetamines. Lebanon Police methamphetamine technicians were called to the scene to process the meth lab.
Vick was charged with possession of Schedule II drugs packaged for resale, possession and manufacture of drugs with intent for resale, tampering with or fabricating evidence and criminal probation violation.
Jennings was charged with possession of Schedule II drugs packaged for resale, two counts of possession and manufacture of drugs with intent for resale, simple possession of drug paraphernalia.
Boatwright originally denied any knowledge of the drug-related paraphernalia found in the car, but was reportedly found to have physical evidence of intravenous drug-use in both arms. She was also taken into custody and was released after posting a bond of $850.
Both Jennings and Vick remained in Wilson County Jail on Tuesday afternoon on $25,500 bond each.
Jennings is the son of Watertown Mayor and Wilson County Attorney Mike Jennings.
