Community Nuisance Team at Work
The Community Nuisance Eradication Team at the Cookeville police department has been busy lately, investigating alleged drug activity around town. And police say those investigations have led them to charge at least five people in three separate incidents. In one case on Hickory Avenue, 31-year-old Jamie Marion Edmonds was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after police say they found a plastic bag with the drug at Edmonds' apartment, along with three small plants, four pipes, and two sets of mechanical scales. His roommate, 32-year-old Angela Lorraine Umfleet, was cited for disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia after she allegedly refused orders from police to stop cursing as they conducted their investigation. Meanwhile, on Crescent Drive, 42-year-old James McCulley was charged with simple possesion of a Schedule II drug after police found what was allegedly a bag with crack cocaine on him. Another person at his home, 46-year-old Marty Edmond Allred of Spruce Street, was issued two citations, after police allegedly saw him throw down a crack pipe, a syringe, and several hydrocodone pills.
