During the traffic stop Breed was also found in possession of the $200 used in the controlled drug deal and a plastic bag of crack cocaine.

Breed was preliminarily charged with class A felony dealing in cocaine or narcotic drug, two counts class B felony possession of cocaine or narcotic drug and class D felony maintaining a common nuisance.

 

52 syringes seized during traffic stop

After making a traffic stop on a vehicle for failing to use a turn signal July 3, Clarksville police officers seized 52 syringes and six burnt spoons as evidence.

According to the police report, the vehicle was traveling on Lewis and Clark Parkway and the stop was made at a pawn shop parking lot.

Once the vehicle was stopped, Dennis Pittman, 25, of Corydon, left the backseat and hurriedly walked to the pawn shop, police reported.

The officer hollered at Pittman who then stopped and talked to the officer.

The officer noted that Pittman appeared to be under the influence of drugs and had “very serious track marks on his arms from using heroin.”

Pittman told the officer he had heroin needles in a bag in the back seat of the vehicle. He said the items were his and that other people in the vehicle had no knowledge of the illegal materials.

“During the search, officers retrieved a bag full of syringes as well as a marijuana cigarette in a cigarette pack inside the bag,” according to the report.

Police reported Pittman alerted them to the syringes because he did not want an officer getting poked during the vehicle search.

Pittman was preliminarily charged with possession of a needle or syringe, a class D felony, and possession of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana, both class A misdemeanors.
