Tullahoma Man Busted For Drugs

Jonathan Taylor

A West Grundy Street man faces a number of drug charges following a traffic stop Wednesday night by a Tullahoma Police officer.
Tullahoma Officer Rocky Ruehling stopped a Dodge Ram on East Lincoln Street operated by Jonathan Taylor for failing to maintain his lane.
As the officer approached the car, Taylor opened the door to get out.  As he did, Ruehling alleges that he observed a bag that contained marijuana sitting in the seat. The officer placed Taylor under arrest, asked him if he had any more drugs, and was told that there “was some marijuana in the floor.”
As the officer searched the car, he allegedly found 300 grams of marijuana along with several Oxycodone, Soma pills, digital scales, as well as $493.07 in cash.
Taylor was booked into the Coffee County Jail on charges of manufacture/delivery/sell of a controlled substance, possession of schedule II, possession of schedule IV, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to maintain control of his vehicle and no proof of insurance. He is being held in the Coffee County Jail under a bond of $23,500 and is scheduled to appear in general sessions court July 26.
