Dandridge police make drug bust
Dandridge police say they arrested two Sevierville residents last weekend on numerous drug charges. Chief of Police Carson Williams said Cpl. Shane Hanshew and Officer Austin Hux were dispatched to the Red Roof Inn on Patriot Drive in response to two suspicious vehicles in the parking lot. Upon arrival, officers approached the vehicles from the rear at which time one of the suspect vehicles was put in reverse in an attempt to flee. Officers were then able to give verbal commands to the driver who eventually stopped. Jefferson County Sheriff’s Dept. K-9 Sgt. Tim Herzog, Cpl. Ransom Douglas and Deputy Brandon Bullins also arrived on scene and assisted in detaining four subjects. During the investigation Sgt. Herzog deployed K-9 Hekko who alerted to narcotics in both vehicles. Chief Williams said a subsequent search of one of the vehicles revealed more than an ounce of crystal methamphetamine, four grams of heroin individually packaged for resale, 1.74 grams of crack cocaine, numerous pills, digital scales, and more than $1000.00 in cash. Jason and Jennifer Finley of Sevierville were both arrested on the numerous drug charges and transported to the Jefferson County Justice Center for booking. Additionally, the Dandridge officers seized the Finley vehicle.
