Deputies from the Macon County Sheriffs Department arrested two individuals Sunday, April 3, in possession of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, marijuana and fentanyl.
According to the affidavit of complaint, Deputy Josh Meador was on patrol on the westside of Macon County when he observed a 2010 black Dodge Charger pull into a residential driveway and the driver act suspiciously.
Officer Meador and Deputy Jason Sells made contact with the vehicle and asked the passenger, later identified as 29-year-old Jacob Ryan Ogg of Hendersonville, to exit the car.
While performing a pat-down of his person, Deputy Meador discovered a meth pipe in Mr. Ogg’s front pocket.
When the driver, identified as 28-year-old Bridget R. Scruggs of Greenbrier, exited the vehicle, officers observed a bag containing a substance that appeared to be heroin.
Upon a full search of the vehicle, officers were able to seize approximately 20 grams of methamphetamine, 3.4 grams of heroin, 6.67 grams of cocaine, 7.6 grams of fentanyl and 3.1 grams of marijuana.
Numerous small, plastic baggies and digital scales, believed to be used for the sale of narcotics, were also seized.
Miss Scruggs was charged with driving on a revoked/suspended license, driving while in possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture/delivery/possession of methamphetamine and manufacturing of narcotics (5 counts). Her bond was set at $95,000.
Mr. Ogg was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture/delivery/possession of methamphetamine and manufacturing of narcotics (5 counts). His bond is set at $87,000.
Both individuals are scheduled to appear in general sessions court on April 20.
Macon County Sheriff Mark Gammons would like to recognize these deputies and their dedication to keeping drugs off the streets. He urges anyone with information concerning illegal drug activity to contact his office. Callers have the option to remain anonymous.
