Rosemeyer arrest
A Cocke County man, free on a $100,000 bond on drug related charges, Thursday was again arrested on drug charges. Cocke County Narcotics Agents Danny Hartsell and David Robertson say they observed a black BMW on Robert E Lee Drive, and when the vehicle came to a stop sign at Old Hwy 32 the driver failed to stop. After following the vehicle the agents attempted a traffic stop, but the driver fled south on Highway 321. The vehicle continued to travel for about one mile before stopping. “Officers said both occupants acted suspicious while fleeing as if they were attempting to conceal something,” said Sheriff Armando Fontes. When officers approached, they detected an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. The driver, Kevin Lee Rosemeyer, 53, McGaha Chapel Road, Cosby, said the vehicle belonged to him and it had nothing illegal inside of it. Rosemeyer gave verbal consent to search the vehicle, and the female passenger was advised of her rights. She admitted to taking drugs from Rosemeyer and hiding them in her pants during the pursuit. During the subsequent search, officers found $4,178.48 in US currency. “And the passenger advised that Rosemeyer had handed her several bags when the officer activated the emergency equipment which contained approximately 35 grams of Methamphetamine, approximately 5.2 grams of marijuana, 1 suboxone, and several clear baggies,” Fontes said. The female told officers she was afraid of Rosemyer and so she took the drugs from him and concealed them, apparently ay his request. According to Sheriff Fontes, Rosemyer has an extensive criminal history. The defendant is charged with Felony Evading Arrest, Possession of Schedule II Methamphetamine and Schedule VI Marijuana for Resale along with Possession of Schedule III Suboxone. He now is being held without bond on the new charges.
