An Alexandria man, on probation in another case, was arrested on Halloween after officers found a meth lab while conducting a search of his property.

43 year old Timothy Wade Ford of New Hope Road, Alexandria is charged with initiation of a process to manufacture methamphetamine. His bond is $75,000 and he will be in court November 14.

Sheriff Patrick Ray said that on Thursday, October 31 sheriff's department detectives and deputies assisted Tennessee Department of Correction probation officers in a search of Ford's residence. During the search, probation officers found several pills and white powder inside the home. A drug detective spoke with Ford and received consent to search an outbuilding where meth components were kept, according to Ford.

A search revealed two Mason jars containing Coleman fuel, rubber tubing with a bottle cap on the end, Gatorade bottles, empty Sudafed blister packs, muriatic acid, empty ice compressed boxes, cut strips from lithium batteries, and baggies containing fifteen aluminum foil balls. Sheriff Ray said Ford admitted that these components were used for the manufacture of methamphetamine. Ford was arrested and brought to the jail for booking.

29 year old Michael Pierre Napier Rose is charged with driving under the influence, a third offense of driving while his license is suspended, evading arrest, and resisting arrest. He was also cited for violation of the implied consent law, violation of the financial responsibility law (no insurance), violation of the open container law, and reckless driving. His bond is $12,000 and he will be in court on November 21.

Sheriff Ray said that on Monday, November 4 a deputy spotted a red Ford Explorer traveling at a high rate of speed and passing cars in a non passing zone. The officer turned on his blue lights and siren in an attempt to get the vehicle to stop but Rose, the driver, initially refused to pull over. After finally getting Rose to stop, the deputy spoke with him. An open beer was in the center of the console. Rose, who pulled up on the sidewalk when coming to a stop, said he saw the blue lights of the approaching patrol car behind him but didn't pull over at first because he was trying to get home. Rose could not produce a valid driver's license and a computer check revealed that his license were suspended for failure to pay fines in Virginia. Rose refused to take a blood test but he submitted to and performed poorly on field sobriety tasks. After the officer informed Rose that he was under arrest for DUI, Rose fled on foot. He had to be forcibly taken to the ground. Once on the ground, Rose refused to be handcuffed, swinging his arms wildly at the officer and he pushed away from the deputy in an attempt to escape. Rose was eventually subdued and brought to the jail for booking.

26 year Lesley Ann Lawrence of Foster Road, Smithville is charged with filing a false report. Her bond is $1,500 and she will be in court on November 21.

Sheriff Ray said that on Monday, November 4 a deputy went to an apartment on Foster Road to serve an arrest warrant on Donald Perry. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with Lawrence. She told the deputy that Perry was not at home and that he was out of town visiting relatives. The officer received consent to search and found Perry hiding behind a pile of clothes in a bedroom closet. Perry was brought to the jail for booking. The deputy also arrested Lawrence.

55 year old Ricky Lynn Devault of Talphia Drive, Dowelltown is charged with aggravated assault. His bond is $5,000. He will be in court on November 21.

Sheriff Ray said that on Tuesday, November 5 a deputy responded to a domestic violence call at 330 Talphia Drive. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with a woman who had red markings on her neck where she had allegedly been strangled by her son, Devault. The woman also had bruising on her hands, grass stains on her clothes, and her glasses were bent where Devault had allegedly thrown her on the ground. Devault was determined to be the primary aggressor and he was arrested and brought to the jail for booking.

Sheriff Ray said that on Wednesday, November 6 a deputy was dispatched to a residence on Lonnie Cantrell Road for a domestic in progress. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with Warner and her husband. Mr. Warner said that he and his wife were arguing due to her allegedly cheating on him. Warner said his wife threw an alarm clock, cutting him on the arm. Jennifer Warner appeared to be the primary aggressor and was arrested and brought to the jail for booking.
