Drug Store Purchases Lead To Drug Arrest

A March 14th court date has been set for a Cookeville man, charged with the promotion of methamphetamine. Authorities say 27-year-old William Brian Clinton of Free Hill Road was arrested after purchasing several items related to the manufacture of methamphetamine at the Walgreens store on North Washington Avenue.  Police say they found him in possession of cold tablets, lithium batteries and latex gloves. And they allege that he admitted he was buying items "for someone who was going to use them to make methamphetamine."
