44-year-old Jimmy Easley was charged with possession of meth, cocaine, and marijuana as well as driving with a revoked license, violation of financial law, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance with the intent for resale. Easley reportedly threatened police following an accident and was discovered to have eight separate bags of drugs on his person and over $2,000 in cash.
On June 9th, Officers Singleton, Schwab, Nelson, Dunn, Payne, Wilson, Marshal, and Brown were all dispatched to the intersection of Park Ave and Colonial Rd. Schwab and Nelson were the first two officers to receive a call regarding the incident in the form of an accident. Officers made contact with a driver who was later identified as Jimmy Easley. According to the affidavit, Easley became enraged when asked to provide proof of insurance and identification. Easley refused to provide any identification and admitted to law enforcement to not having insurance of any kind. Following the man’s refute, Easley began to vacate himself from the premises, to which the officers responded by attempting to return the man to the scene of the accident.
Easley initiated a fighting stance and threatened law enforcement when being directed back to the scene, per report. Easley then allegedly advised to officers that he would return to his Lexus and obtain a handgun within the vehicle. It was at this point that Singleton arrived at the scene and noticed Easley in the backseat of the Lexus making suspicious movements. Law enforcement advised Easley to cease movement multiple times, eventually obeying and exiting the vehicle.
Officers proceeded to detain Easley and initiated a search of his person. As officer Wilson began the pat-down search, a large bag including seven smaller bags fell from his pant leg. Inside the large bag contained three bags with a substance similar to cocaine or fentanyl. The other four bags contained substances consistent with methamphetamine, green pills imprinted with “S 90 3”, multicolored pills similar to ecstasy, and another bag with various blue pills, labeled “G3721”, “B706” and “B707”. Nelson’s search of Easley revealed yet another bag-containing a substance matching marijuana-as well as $2,147 in cash. A search of Easley’s name in the National Crime Information Center revealed the man’s license to be revoked as of February of 2020 due to a failure to file an owner-operator report.
Jimmy Easley was arrested and charged with possession of meth, cocaine, and marijuana as well as driving with a revoked license, violation of financial law, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance with the intent for resale. His bond was set at $100,000.
