Lewisburg police officers arrested three individuals Feb. 5 on possession of heroin charges.

According to the arrest report, the department had received tips that a resident of the Peartree Apartments on Nashville Highway, David Brantley, was selling heroin at that location.

Discovering that he also had an active felony warrant from Bowling Green, Ky., officers serving the warrant encountered Brantley outside of the building.

Seeing the officers, he ran into the apartment followed by police. Officers took him into custody inside the apartment, where the report states that needles, burnt spoons, and cotton balls with a black substance on them were observed in plain view.

A brown powder believed to be heroin was found on his person as well.

Officers clearing the apartment discovered Haley Hensley and Michael Maddux in a back bedroom as well.

Once secured, officers obtained a search warrant and, upon searching, discovered several spoons and at least two hypodermic needles loaded with a black substance that field tested as heroin.

The three were charged with possession of a Schedule I drug and possession of drug paraphenalia and each held on $15,500 bond.

• On Feb. 2, several LPD officers responded to a report of a shoplifting suspect who had fled from Wal-Mart. Officers spotted the suspect along the railroad tracks to the west of the store.

Told to stop, he began running from officers until he was cut off at the Lewisdale Trailer Park and arrested.

The suspect, Justin Force, was discovered to have warrants from both the city of Lewisburg and the Marshall County Sheriff’s office. Force was charged with shoplifting, evading arrest, and a violation of probation from Lewisburg City Court and held on $4,500 bond.

• On Feb. 4, Marshall County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call involving an unwanted person. Arriving at the Roberts Road address, they discovered Carl D. Clark sitting in his car as if asleep.

Exiting the vehicle, Clark told the deputy that he could not find his keys in order to leave. The report stated that the deputy told Clark that he had to leave the residence and that they would take him somewhere if needed but riding in the patrol car required a pat down.

The deputy discovered a round container in Clark’s front pocket which Clark claimed held Q-tips but which also was found to contain a bag of white powder which field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

Arrested for possession, Clark told the deputy on the way to jail that he had something else as well. Further searched at the jail, deputies found another container with six methadone pills inside.

Clark was charged with possession of meth and possession of a Schedule II drug and held on $15,000 bond.

• Answering a possible trespasser call in the early morning of Feb. 1, LPD discovered Nancy Gentry leaving the Cummings Circle area. According to the report, Gentry stated to officers that she was drunk and had left a friend’s apartment after someone was rude to her.

Gentry has a longstanding ban from any Lewisburg Housing Authority property, which she has a history of violating. She was charged with public intoxication and criminal trespass and held on $1,000 bond.
