A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Rutherford County from Wednesday at 9pm until Thursday at noon. 1-3" of snow/sleet and up to a 1/10" of ice is possible.
Murfreesboro Police pulled a man over after spotting him texting while driving and not wearing a seat belt, according to an arrest report. Upon first questioning 35-year old Joshua D. Norville, he allegedly told Officer Whitehead that his last name was Moore. That name later changed to Norville, which was the correct last name.
When Norville got out of the car police found a newly filled bottle of Adderall. While the prescription date showed that it had been filled on August 22nd, all 60-pills were gone. Police later located a pill container in the center console with 19-Adderall pills and a straw.
Adderall is typically used for those who have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyper Disorder. It is also used to treat narcolepsy. The drug is often abused by teens and young adults as it creates a stimulant. That feeling increases when it is snorted as opposed to it being taken by mouth.
Police asked the Smyrna man if they could search his phone and he not only complied, but also showed police how to access his text messages. One of the messages was in relation to drug sales.
As a result of the traffic stop, he was charged with the sale of / or the possession of a schedule two drug and criminal impersonation. Norville will be in court on October 30, 2014.
