A traffic stop yielded drug charges on a Ringgold man after reports of an erratic driver.
Bobby L. Reynolds, 53, of 1600 block of Churchhill Road in Ringgold, was arrested Saturday, April 18, and charged with one count of possession of Schedule III CDS, three counts of possession of Schedule IV CDS and careless operation. Bond was set at $10,250.
“Officer Jeremy Sitter observed a vehicle driving all over the road,” Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said. “He made a traffic stop on him and he indicated he was in route to the hospital.”
Cropper says paramedics were notified and they traveled to the scene and checked him out, finding nothing wrong. According to reports, Reynolds told Sitter he was going to the hospital for possible pneumonia.
At that time, officers conducted a search, and according to reports, a bottle of pills was discovered. The drugs inside the pill bottle were later identified as diazepam, alprazolam 1 milligram, alprazolam 2 milligrams and buprenorphine, according to reports. Police say he admitted he did not have a prescription for the pills.
Officer Terry Stephens assisted in the stop and subsequent arrest.
He was taken into custody and transported to the Minden police station for booking.
