Drug Charges Pending

Drug charges are pending against a Cookeville woman who was a passenger in a van that was pulled over by police for displaying tags that actually belonged on a Geo Prism. Officer Josh Ward noticed that discrepancy as the vehicle was travelling on Whitney Avenue. He says the driver, 44-year-old Donald Charles Savage of Poplar Grove Road, did not have a valid license and was cited for his third offense of driving on a suspended license. The passenger, 33-year-old Rhonda Sue Brown, allegedly had two outstanding warrants for her arrest and was also found to be in possession of hydrocodone pills, dilaudid and a syringe. She was issued citations for simple possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
