17-year-old Kimberly Jenkins and 34-year-old Daniel Dennington were charged with six counts of drug paraphernalia and theft of property after they were caught in a stolen vehicle out of Missouri.
On September 26th, Shelby County Deputies Brooks, Thomas, Delaney, and Trent responded to a Recovery/Foreign with Arrest at 6040 Raleigh-Millington Road. Dispatchers advised deputies of a BOLO from a flock camera hit in the area. Deputies observed the stolen vehicle and made a traffic stop. NCIC verified the Missouri license plate on a black 2013 Buick Regal sedan that had been reported as stolen. The deputies immediately detained all three occupants. Deputy Delaney spoke to Daniel Dennington that said he was the owner of the car, which was found to be untrue. Kimberly Jenkins and her sister Julie Clement told deputies they all had been using the vehicle for travel.
Deputies then check Dennington’s information in the system that revealed he had an outstanding warrant in Missouri. All of the occupants gave verbal consent to the deputies to search the vehicle. Deputy Delaney searched the car and found six glass pipes, two smoking bongs, and a pair of drug scales that were used during their travel. Both Dennington and Jenkins claimed ownership of the illegal items. Julie Clement was released at the scene without incident.
Kimberly Jenkins and Daniel Dennington were each charged with six counts of drug paraphernalia and theft of property. His bond was set at $5,000.
Kimberly was believed to be 20 years old when she was detained. During booking, SCSO discovered her to be only 17 years old and she was released to the custody of her grandmother.
