31-year-old Joshua McIntire was charged with two counts of possession of meth for resale, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a firearm while committing a felony, and two counts of drug paraphernalia when he was pulled over for running a stop sign and a K9 sniffed drugs inside his car and he had a pair of brass knuckles on his person.
On June 25th, LPD K9 Officer Parish was routinely patrolling the Leeville Pike are when he noticed a vehicle fail to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Leeville Pike and South Greenwood. The officer conducted a traffic stop and found the defendant, Joshua McIntire to be the driver of the vehicle and noticed in plain sight two butane torches. After McIntire denied the officer’s request to search the vehicle, he asked him to step out of the vehicle and let his police service dog conduct a sniff test.
The K9 officer reacted to the vehicle suggestive of there being drugs inside. Officer Parish then did a probable cause search of the vehicle where he found two butane torches, two glass pipes, a cut straw, and a plastic baggie that field-tested positive for methamphetamine residue. A search of McIntire’s person leads to the officer finding a pair of brass knuckles in his back pocket and another baggie of positively tested methamphetamine. Wilson County has capias warrants out for McIntire the officer found with a computer check, per report.
Joshua McIntire was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of meth for resale, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a firearm while committing a felony, and two counts of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $52,000.
