Alcoa Police officers say they found 2.7 grams of heroin in a car during a traffic stop at 3:16 a.m.Jan. 9 on South Washington Street in Maryville, and two men face multiple charges.
Douglas Frank Seivers, 22, Knoxville, is being held in Blount County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $102,500, and Austin Cordell Click, 22, Amy Renee Way, Maryville, on bonds totaling $55,000.
Both are scheduled to appear at 1:30 p.m. hearings Jan. 14 in Blount County General Sessions Court.
Seivers is charged with manufacture, delivery, sale or possession of a Schedule I controlled substance (heroin) in a drug-free zone; manufacture, delivery, sale or possession of a Schedule II controlled substance (meth) with intent to sell; introduction of contraband into a penal facility; and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Click is charged with manufacture, delivery, sale or possession of a Schedule I controlled substance (heroin) in a drug-free zone and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The car they were in, where Alcoa officers said they found illegal drugs, crossed over the Maryville-Alcoa Greenway and stopped within 100 yards of the Boys and Girls Club of Blount County, drug-free zones.
An Alcoa Police officer reported first observing the car without a functioning license plate light while patrolling South Hall Road and said the driver and passengers acted nervously before and during the traffic stop. Maryville Police also participated in the stop.
Officers reported finding a meth pipe in the pocket of the jacket Click was wearing and 29 small bags in a cigarette pack, which he said were not his.
They reported finding digital scales in Seivers’ pants pocket, and he told them he found the scales in the car and put them in his pocket to give to the officer.
During a K-9 search the dog alerted to the odor of illegal drugs. Officers said inside the car they found 0.5 grams of a brown powder believed to be heroin in two bags where Seivers was seated and 2.2 grams in a bag under where Click was seated. Each man said the drugs weren’t his.
At the Blount County Jail, officers reported finding 1.4 grams of heroin near Seivers’ buttocks area and 1.1 grams of a white crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine.
