29-year-old Courtney Jones was charged with a methamphetamine violation, possession of meth, DUI, paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, and no insurance after getting into an accident while carrying illicit drugs in her car.

On September 17th, Clarksville Police Officer Trescott was dispatched to an accident at 423 Kelsey Drive. The officer made contact with the sole occupant of the vehicle, Courtney Jones. She said her brakes stopped working which caused the crash. Jones advised officers she did not have insurance for the vehicle. Officer Trescott asked for permission to search the vehicle, but she did not consent.

Trescott then deployed a police service dog named Arlo that gave a positive indication on the vehicle. The search produced a black pouch found on the front passenger side floorboard containing multiple apple baggies, a razor blade, and a baggy containing methamphetamine which weighed about 5 grams. There was also a digital scale found in the vehicle. Jones also appeared to have a revoked license from a previous driving under the influence charge. She also performed poorly on the field sobriety tests.

Courtney Jones was arrested and charged with a methamphetamine violation, possession of meth, unlawful drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence second offense, driving on suspended/ revoked license, and no proof of insurance. She is currently jailed in lieu of a $47,500 bond.
