Noise violation leads to drug arrest in north Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Knoxville man received a lesson in being discreet when he was arrested on drug charges after an officer approached to tell him his car stereo was too loud.

According to police reports, a Knoxville police officer noticed a Dodge Charger with its radio blaring parked on W. Scott Ave. As the officer approached the car to tell the driver, Larry Eugene Scandrick, that he was violating the noise ordinance, Scandrick got out of his car and allegedly threw something underneath a nearby Chevy Impala.

When officers found the items, they turned out to be two plastic bags containing 25 grams of marijuana and a little more than 11 grams of crack.

Scandrick was arrested and charged with Possession of Schedule II for Resale in a School Zone, Possession of Schedule VI for Resale in a School Zone, and No Driver's License. His car turned out to be a rental.

He is being held on $23,000 bond.
