A parole search performed by the Pike County Sheriff’s Office and the Murfreesboro Police Department led to two felony arrests Friday, September 4.
According to Pike County Detective Glen Hankins, officers gathered to search the residence of 48-year-old Jerry Deal in the Nathan community.
As officers pulled onto Deal Road they noticed Deal run inside the residence. Officers made entry and found approximately a pound of suspected marijuana, split in two bricks.
One of the bricks was found inside the coffee table in the living room and the other was found in a bedroom that 37-year-old Karri Haney claimed to be her room.
Officers also found cash and a plastic bag filled with other plastic bags that are generally used for the distribution and sale of marijuana.
Deal is actively on parole and was arrested for failure to appear, possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver and possession of a controlled substance-marijuana.
Haney was arrested for possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver and possession of a controlled substance-marijuana.
Both Deal and Haney are currently incarcerated in the Pike County Detention Facility.
