Two individuals are facing drug charges following a traffic stop. According to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, an officer observed a motorist traveling with their high beams on blinding oncoming drivers on Peavine Road. The deputy attempted to pull over the male driver when a chase ensued. It ended on Rockwood Highway after officers deployed spike strips. The male driver fled the scene on foot. A female passenger, 29-year-old Loura Michelle Curtis of Tullahoma, remained inside. A search of the vehicle reportedly revealed a sawed off shotgun and digital scales. Curtis was charged with possession of a prohibited weapon and drug paraphernalia. The second traffic stop started off like the first. Officers pulled over a vehicle for running with high beam lights blinding motorists on I-40. Deputies reportedly smelled an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle operated by 29-year-old Stefanie Meshell Harper of Clinton, Tennessee. A search of the vehicle reportedly revealed heroin, cocaine, marijuana, pills and a 9 mm handgun. Harper was arrested for the manufacture, sale and delivery of drugs, unlawful possession of a weapon and driving on a suspended license.
