Court Date Set For Man Caught With Drugs

An August 6th court date has been set for a Cookeville man, charged with possessing drugs with the intent of re-selling them. Police say 20-year-old Christopher Papacsi of Grider Road was arrested after a traffic stop on South Willow Avenue. Officer Shannon Smith claims that Papacsi was speeding and says that during an investigation subsequent to the traffic stop, authorities turned up about six ounces of marijuana, some of which was found individually wrapped in plastic bags. Police say a specially trained drug dog was brought in for a search after Papacsi allegedly became nervous during questioning about the possibility of having illegal drugs.
