Brandon Thomas (MCSO)

39-year-old Brandon Thomas was charged with possession of marijuana, paraphernalia, meth, fentanyl, and resisting arrest after being stopped for his window tint, where he consented to a search and then tried to run from police.

On September 30th, Clarksville Police Officer Pacheco conducted a traffic stop on a black Lexus with noticeable tint in the area of Fort Campbell Boulevard and Lealand Drive. Pacheco met the driver, Brandon Thomas, and asked him to roll the window up slightly to check the tint. It was measured to be 4%. Pacheco then asked Thomas for a license, registration, and proof of insurance. Thomas provided all documents, stepped out of his vehicle, and consented to a search of his person. While Thomas had his hands on the trunk of his vehicle, Pacheco found rolling papers, a baggie with marijuana and burnt blunts inside on his person.

Thomas reportedly became fidgety while being searched and was told to keep his hands on the trunk of the car. Pacheco attempted to placed Thomas in handcuffs after he was said to have pulled away from the trunk again. Thomas managed to pull away from Pacheco and ran across Fort Campbell Boulevard. Reportedly, Thomas continued to resist arrest by pulling away from handcuffs while he was told to quit resisting. Thomas was then taken into custody.

Authorities conducted a further investigation by searching through his vehicle. Inside, authorities found a fanny pack in the console. The fanny pack held over a half gram of a white powder, MDMA pills, over a half gram of pink powder, and over a half gram of methamphetamine. All items were individually wrapped.

Brandon Thomas was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, paraphernalia, meth, two counts of possession of fentanyl, evading arrest, and resisting arrest. His bond was set at $80,000.
