Comments Off on “Crotch Area” of Her Shorts Reportedly Proves Ineffective Hiding Place For Pipe, Methamphetamine Belonging to Rachel D. Burlson, 37, of Greeneville

Rachel D. Burlson, 37, of 600 Choctaw Drive, was charged Wednesday afternoon with drug-related offenses, Greeneville police Officer Larry Gilbert said in a report.

Burlson was charged with simple possession of a Schedule II, III and VI drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police were called to Lee’s Food Mart on West Summer Street on a report of a woman kicking the door of a car “that looked like it had been in an accident,” the report said.

The car had been at the gas pumps and was pulling out of the parking lot when police arrived.

A man identified as Cory R. Mathes, 22, of 1520 Nolichuckey Road, was driving.

A records check showed that Mathes’ driver’s license was suspended for failure to pay a citation, another report by Gilbert said.

Mathes was charged with driving on a suspended license.

He gave officers permission to search the vehicle and the passenger, Burlson, was asked to step out of the car, the report said.

Officers noticed Burlson “was trying to hold something in the crotch area of her shorts,” the report said.

Burlson told officers “it was just a pipe,” the report said.

Burlson was asked to remove the pipe from her shorts. When she did, a “small zipped up bag” fell to the ground, the report said.

Methamphetamine, Suboxone and marijuana was found inside the bag, the report said.

During the car search, a bag of unused syringes was found, the report added.

Bond for Burlson was set at $4,000, with a first General Sessions court appearance scheduled for Friday.

Bond for Mathes was set at $1,000. His first court appearance was also scheduled for Friday.
