Citation Issued For Drug Possession

A woman who reportedly told authorities that she had just gotten out of jail on a probation violation may be headed back there after a traffic stop conducted by Cookeville police. Officer Cary Matheney says 33-year-old Michelle Y. Knight of Smith Lane, Cookeville, was a passenger in a car he stopped on Saturday evening. He says a pat down search of Ms. Knight allegedly turned up eleven Xanax bars in a prescription bottle with the label torn off. Matheney says two used hypodermic needles were also found in Knight's purse. He issued her a citation for simple possession of drugs. Authorities say remaining drug-free is usually a condition of probation.
