NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Virginia man’s attempt to avoid Metro officers on Interstate 40 only raised more suspicion and landed him jail, police said Wednesday.
Christopher Cameron, 20, reportedly got off I-40 at McCrory Lane only to immediately get back on.
In doing so, Cameron avoided driving by Officer Robert McIsaac, who was parked on the shoulder. However, McIssac noticed Cameron’s silver Mustang and stopped him for speeding a few miles down the road.
Cameron, who police say appeared nervous, said he was traveling to Texas but failed to say where.
After he denied a request to search his car, Officer McIsaac and his K9 Paco did a sweep of the car, during which Paco alerted to drugs in the trunk.
McIsaac then found 1.5 pounds of high-grade marijuana, marijuana wax, drug paraphernalia, an AR-15 rifle and ammunition.
Cameron was charged with possessing marijuana for resale, gun possession in the commission of a felony drug crime and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $305,000.
