While conducting a traffic stop along U.S. Highway 127 North early Friday morning, Cumberland County deputies arrested 32-year-old Joshua Brian Sparks of Cookeville and 35-year-old Jacquelyn Sibilla of Crossville on a variety of charges. Sibilla gave deputies a syringe that field tested positive for meth; deputies also found two more syringes with meth and a Gabapentin capsule in her purse. In the vehicle, they found a syringe with meth inside the driver’s door.
At intake, deputies found two capsules in the back floorboard that appeared to have been crushed in an attempt to destroy them. They were also identified as Gabapentin.
Officers asked both subjects multiple times before entering the jail whether they had anything on them. During a strip search, they located another Gabapentin capsule and a bag of meth on Sparks’ person.
Sparks was charged with felony manufacture, sale, delivery or possession of meth, possession of a legend drug, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence and introduction of contraband into a penal institution. He was placed under $18,000 bond and is due to appear in court March 25.
