On Saturday, 21 January at approximately 10:53 a.m., Officer Fred Washington was patrolling on Meigg Street when he observed a vehicle pulling away at a high rate of speed. Officer Washington closed the distance and initiated a traffic stop.
While Officer Washington was interviewing the driver, Brady Burrell, he noticed Mr. Burrell was trying to push something under his seat. When asked about his activity, Mr. Burrell stated that it was a crack pipe that he was trying to push under the seat.
Mr. Burrell was then directed to exit the vehicle and was asked if he had anything else illegal on his person, to which he replied he had some marijuana in his pocket. As Officers started their search to retrieve the marijuana from Mr. Burrell’s pocket, he further volunteered that he had some methamphetamines in his pocket as well. Officer Washington then retrieved the marijuana and methamphetamines and placed Mr. Burrell under arrest. Officer Washington further collected the crack pipe from under the driver seat as well.
Mr. Burrell was then transported to the Alcorn County Jail where he was booked in for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of Marijuana in a Motor Vehicle, and he was later charged for Felony Possession of Controlled Substance (Methamphetamines). The narcotics were processed into evidence and will be transported to the State Crime Lab for confirmation testing.
The felony drug charge will be presented to an Alcorn County Grand Jury and the misdemeanor charges will be handled in Corinth Municipal Court.
