DEPUTIES: Stopped for speeding, caught with meth
DUDLEY, Wayne County - Deputies in Wayne County say they pulled over a man for speeding and after some digging, discovered the suspect was a repeat offender in possession of methamphetamine.
On March 24, members of the Wayne County Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Team were conducting patrol saturation. Deputies say during patrol they stopped Dillon Blake Brown on US Hwy. 70 East for traveling 74 mph in a 55 mph zone.
Brown gave a law enforcement official a fake name after being stopped, according to the Wayne County Sheriff's Office. After correctly identifying Brown, officials were notified that he was wanted for felony probation violation.
The "ACE Team" had arrested Brown earlier this year for possession of methamphetamine. After that discovery, a K9 partner began to sniff around the vehicle. The canine gave a positive alert for the odor of narcotics. A search of the vehicle was conducted and deputies say they found 8.2 grams of methamphetamine.
Brown was issued a citation for speeding and placed in the Wayne County Detention Center under a $39,000 secured bond. Brown's charges include: Possession with the intention to sell/deliver methamphetamine and simple possession. Brown is from Dudley.
