Rolling suspected crime scene truck | New
A man in the Tellico Plains area had so many alleged crimes in his car on April 24, you had to wonder why he even left home.
Tellico Police Officer Eric Kilby said he saw a truck with no tail lights at the intersection of Freeway 68 and Bank Street and turned on its lights to stop it, but the truck continued.
Kilby said the driver had entered the other lane several times, ignored several stop signs before finally coming to a stop at the Hooper Road / Lick Creek Junction intersection.
Kilby identified the driver as Kenneth Bryan Burns and said he had a green, leafy substance that strongly resembled marijuana all over his shirt and pants.
After getting Burns out of the truck, Kilby said he found two blue tablets believed to be alprazolam in the driver’s seat, a clear crystalline substance believed to be methamphetamine and more of the leafy substance green.
Kilby then checked Burns and found he had the wrong labels on the truck, had no insurance, and his driver’s license had been revoked.
Burns, 58, Hooper Road, Tellico Plains, has been charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana, Evading Arrest, Breach of Insurance, Driving with a Revoked License, Improper Display of Plates, violation of the law on light, failure to give way and failure to keep the way.
