Routine traffic stop leads to marijuana bust in Morristown

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Morristown police officers pulled over a car Friday for an seatbelt violation, and officers say they discovered 31.7 grams marijuana after gaining consent to search the car.

24-year-old Nicholas Everhart, formally of Morristown but now lives in Creswell, Oregon, was arrested on the scene.

Morristown police officers then went to the house Everhart was staying, and officers say they discovered 19.5 pounds of marijuana in the house after the residents gave consent for the search.

    They had to be watching that house and just got a car from there, if they would just tax it they could make more money and keep innocent/harmless people out of jail.Legalize it

    Sounds like these guys dont know they have a right to refuse a search. "sorry officer, I don't consent to searches." It's not that difficult
