On August 30th, Lebanon Police Officer David Winfree responded to an assault at Dix Motor Lodge located at 319 West Main Street. When Winfree arrived he made contact with Verdell “Delly Dell” Sesley who stated he was from Memphis and had been robbed and assaulted. As the officer tried to gain more information, Delly became uncooperative.
Delly then asked for a ride to Market Street where he was staying. The officer told him he would need to be searched for safety reasons before getting into the patrol vehicle. Officer Winfree found a glass pipe with residue from smoking contraband in Delly’s pant pocket during the pat-down. Winfree set the pipe on his patrol car and Delly grabbed the pipe then threw it into the grass, but it was easily recoverable.
