Suspicious vehicle call leads to meth arrest

A call reporting a suspicious vehicle in Nashville resulted in the arrest of an 18-year-old Nashville man on drug charges March 26.

Nashville Police Officer Kyle Seward responded to the call in the 100 block of East Gould Street where he found a grey truck backed into a parking spot with a man exiting it, a probable cause affidavit states.

A second car with two people inside was parked in the grass and parking lot. The man in the truck, later identified as Adrian Bennitt, told Seward that he was getting a ride because his truck had run out of gas.

Seward asked if he could search Bennitt and Bennitt emptied the content of his pockets. They included a scale that said he used to measure out “his drugs,” the affidavit said.

While looking into the second car, Seward noticed a spoon on top of Bennitt’s items in the back seat. Bennitt told Seward the spoon was used for meth, the report said.

Seward searched both vehicles and reported finding less than one gram of meth. Bennitt was arrested.

On March 27, he was charged with possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
