Traffic Stop Recovers Drugs and Stolen Computers

Two stolen computers, eleven grams of cocaine, and marijuana were recovered during a traffic stop on I-24 at the 72-mile marker. The traffic stop was executed by the Tennessee Highway Patrol this past week. Arrested and charged with theft, felony possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, and driving on a revoked license was 27-year old Courtney Skinner. The computers that were located in the trunk of Skinner’s car were apparently stolen from two separate Wal-Mart stores. One computer was said to be stolen from the Wal-Mart in Tullahoma, and the second was allegedly taken from a Wal-Mart in Springfield. A female passenger in the car was not arrested, even though the marijuana and cocaine were located in her purse. Skinner allegedly admitted to the state trooper that the drugs were his. Skinner was taken to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center where he was booked under a $27,000 bond.
