Late Friday evening Deputy Dakota Williams was driving in the lower end of the county when he noticed a car driving in an erratic manner. Deputy Williams initiated a traffic stop right at the Caryville city limits. He was joined by Corporal Nathaniel Bostic.
Deputy Williams made contact with the driver, identified as Meagan Reid, 39 of Caryville. Reid stated that the car was a rental and that she had neither registration or proof of insurance. As Deputy Williams was running a routine warrant check Corporal Bostic stated that he had observed a black ziplock bag in the passenger seat that looked suspicious.

After a search was conducted the back ziplock bag was found concealed in Reid’s waistband. The baggie contained another bag containing a crystalline substance, a chapstick container containing five round and yellow pills with V2530 on them, this indicates that the pills were Clonazepam 0.5 mg.
