Speeding In School Zone Sends Two To Jail

Speeding in a school zone led to two Winchester women being charged with possession of 1.75 pounds of marijuana. Tullahoma Police Officer Chris Coe reported clocking by radar a GMC Envoy operated by 60 year old Shirley Miller, of Winchester traveling at 25 mph in the school zone at East Lincoln School. As the officer approached the vehicle he alleged that he detected the strong odor of marijuana from the vehicle. The woman gave the officer permission to search her vehicle and he found two bags in the rear floorboard with each containing approximately a quarter pound of marijuana. When the officer searched the rear cargo area, he allegedly found a duffle bag containing approximately one pound as well as drug paraphernalia. In addition to the driver being arrested Officer Coe arrested Danielle Jannette Miller, 27, of Winchester. The pair was charged with manufacturing/delivery/sell of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. They are being held in the Coffee County Jail under a bond of $27,000. They are scheduled to appear in General Sessions court Sept. 13.
