  • While patrolling the area along Phillips County Road 315 and 304 Road on Aug. 21, Deputy Jeremy Bramlet observed a white Mercury Cougar driving left of center with a broken left taillight. According to an incident report filed by the PCSO, the routine stop resulted in a drug arrest.
    Bramlet informed the driver why he was making the stop. While speaking with the man, the report says the deputy detected a strong odor of intoxicants coming from the driver and the vehicle.
    According to the report, Bramlet asked the driver, identified as Timothy Vessells, if he had been drinking. Vessells told the deputy that he had about six beers with a friend earlier in the evening.
    The report states that Bramlet asked Vessells to step out of the car for a field sobriety test. The deputy proceeded to ask Vessells if there were any drugs of any kind in the vehicle and requested to search it. Vessells granted Bramlet permission to check the car.
    Inside the car, the report says Bramlet found a M&M candy container with a small, clear plastic bag inside. A clear, rock-like substance was inside the bag.
    At this time, the report states that Bramlet placed Vessells under arrest for possession of a controlled substance.
    Lt. Sylvester Rose reported that he field-tested the rock-like substance, which tested positive for meth. Vessells was transported to the PCSO for processing.
    The report does not indicate what, if any, charges were filed, or if Vessells remained in custody.
