33-year-old Antoine Gray was charged with possession of cocaine for resale and tampering with evidence after being found with over a half gram of cocaine in his rear end during a traffic stop regarding an expired temporary tag.
On June 25th, Officer Smith initiated a traffic stop at the intersection of Poston and College Street on a Hyundai Tuscon due to the vehicle’s temporary tag being expired. Upon approach to the vehicle, three individuals were identified inside the vehicle: Tawana Williamson and Steven Burney occupied the front two seats while Antoine Gray sat in the back. Shortly after the stop was conducted, K9 Deputy Vallejos and Police Service Dog Rico arrived at the scene. Rico was used for a public odor exam on the SUV, to which the test returned positive. Searches were conducted on all three individuals and the vehicle, yielding no located contraband.
The three suspects were taken to the Clarksville Special Operations Unit for a more detailed investigation. As Gray was being searched, Smith recovered a bag containing presumed crack cocaine from the man’s buttocks, per report. According to the affidavit, part of the suspected substance tested positive for cocaine and was weighed to be over one half-gram. The other two suspects were released after no contraband was found on their person.
Antoine Gray was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine for resale and tampering with evidence. His bond was set at $60,000.
