Cookeville man tries to elude police; two pounds of weed and meth found inside vehicle

22-year-old William Booker was charged with possession of meth, marijuana for resale, and drug paraphernalia after being observed attempting to elude police. A traffic stop search revealed over two pounds of weed and meth inside the vehicle.

On July 15th, an officer who was patrolling Highway 231 noticed a vehicle turning right onto Gay Street, then left on Greenwood, and turned into a house, and turned its lights off in an attempt to elude the officer. The officer drove past the vehicle and noticed the vehicle pulling back out of the house and go back the way it came.

They made several turns again and eventually came back to the house they had previously pulled into to turn their lights off. Dayshon Senna was recognized as the driver after the police officer made a traffic stop as well as the defendant, William Booker, as the passenger.

A search of the vehicle yielded a backpack in the backseat with approximately two pounds of marijuana that Senna claimed as his. They also found a jar containing one and a half to two ounces of marijuana, digital scales, and a blue bag containing what the officer believed is methamphetamine. This was all claimed by William Booker.

William Booker was arrested and charged with possession of meth, possession of marijuana for resale, and unlawful drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $10,000.
