A Red Boiling Springs man was arrested on Wednesday, November 15, after reports came into the Macon County Sheriffs Department regarding a disoriented subject walking on the shoulder of Highway 52 West.
According to the report filed by Deputy Byron Butcher of the Macon County Sheriff’s Department, the subject was identified as 38-year-old Glendon Wilkerson.
“Upon speaking with Glendon, he did state that he was walking to Westmoreland,” the report states. “I did advise Glendon that I would give him a ride and Glendon did agree.”
Deputy Butcher then says he asked Mr. Wilkerson if he had any weapons, and he stated that he only had a knife on his side. Mr. Wilkerson also told Deputy Butcher that he was currently on probation.
“Upon advising Glendon that I was going to frisk him for any other weapons, he became nervous and stated that he did have a pistol in his waistband,” the officer’s report explains. “I did then retrieve a loaded Highpoint 380 from Glendon’s waistband.”
Mr. Wilkerson, a convicted felon, also told the officer that he had meth located in a small black case.
Deputy Butcher’s report discloses that 3.85 grams of a crystal substance believed to be meth was found inside three baggies.
Two sets of scales and hypodermic needles containing residue were also found in Mr. Wilkerson’s backpack.
Wilkerson was charged with manufacture/delivery/possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a firearm during a violent felony and violation of probation.
His bond was set at $9,000, and he scheduled to appear in Macon County General Sessions Court on November 22 & December 13, 2017.
