Lebanon police Sunday released the names and charges of two suspects arrested after officers found chemicals and materials used to make methamphetamine in their car Friday night.
Danny Lamar Vick, 42, of Lebanon, 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. Vick remained in Wilson County Jail on Sunday night on $15,500 bond.
Brandon Michael Jennings, 27, of Watertown, 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 drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. Jennings remained Sunday night in Wilson County Jail on $25,500 bond.
Jennings is the son of Watertown mayor and county attorney Mike Jennings.
According to Lebanon police Meth Technician Chris Luna, Officer Eric Gray made a traffic stop on a car at the Burger King on N. Cumberland Street for an apparent registration violation Friday at about 5 p.m.
Luna said during the stop, Gray found a coffee filter with a white substance in it. Gray then called Luna to the scene to test the substance. Luna said it tested positive for meth.
During a search of the car, Luna said ingredients and materials used to make meth in a one-pot method were found. Luna said two of the four suspects in the car were charged. Luna said officers discovered of the suspects had an active warrant.
Luna said officers also found crack cocaine in the car during the search.
State Meth Task Force agents were called to clear the scene and properly dispose of the chemicals after Luna took samples of each for evidence. The process took about four hours.
