54-year-old Darryl Box was charged with drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm while committing a felony, possession of heroin, possession of ecstasy, possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine for resale, and possession of marijuana for resale after officers found paraphernalia in his vehicle while investigating a burglary call.
On March 11th, police were dispatched for a possible burglary at 149 Walnut Way in Lebanon. While searching the vehicles in the vicinity, officers located a questionable vehicle parked in the driveway of 259 Walnut Way. According to affidavits, Glen Pitts had no clue what or whose vehicle was in his driveway. Readily visible in the vehicle was a firearm, straw, and a clear jar containing white powder. Officers determined the misplaced vehicle belonged to Darryl Box and sent an officer to his home, where ownership of the vehicle was confirmed by his daughter. Upon arrival to his vehicle, Darryl told police he parked it there and went to a party.
Officers reported that Darryl consented to a search of his vehicle. Officers discovered a loaded weapon found under the seat, a total of seventeen rounds of ammunition, four foil packages and a plastic bag of marijuana, nine foil packages of cocaine, a glass jar with possible heroin, meth, two purple pills of ecstasy, crack cocaine, a red straw containing a white powder residue, and 2 SD card holders with powder residue.
Darryl Box was arrested and charged with drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm while committing a felony, possession of heroin, possession of ecstasy, possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine for resale, and possession of marijuana for resale. His bond was set at $16,000.
A few days later on March 15th, Officer Sam Elliot saw Darryl walking into Mapco on South Mount Juliet Road. Knowing Darryl had an open warrant, the officer detained him and found a cut straw and residue on Darryl’s person. He was arrested and charged with drug paraphernalia and violation of probation.
