Pruett also faces a charge of manufacture, deliver, sale, or possession of schedule II. Greenlaw is also charged with manufacture, delivery, sale, possession of controlled substances.
Harriman Police Officer Tony Gregory said he saw a white Chevy Equinox driving seven miles over the speed limit on Oct. 22.
“While waiting for a safe place to conduct a traffic stop, the vehicle continued down Childs Road, where it failed to maintain its current lane of travel several times,” the warrant said. “As the vehicle approached 120 Childs Road (Days Inn), I activated my blue lights and conducted a traffic stop.”
Pruett was driving and Greenlaw was in the passenger seat.
“While speaking to the occupants, I observed the odor of marijuana emitting from inside the vehicle,” the warrant said. “A probable cause search of both the vehicle and occupants was conducted. The search of Mr. Pruett recovered 103.84 grams of a brown powdery substance that tested field positive for fentanyl located in his shoes.”
The street value of that amount of fentanyl is $26,000. The warrant said the search of Greenlaw also uncovered drugs.
“The search of Mr. Greenlaw recovered 32.78 grams of a brown powdery (substance) that field-tested positive for heroin, four of which were individually packaged for distribution and 390 pills identified as oxymorphone located in his shoes.”
Greenlaw and Pruett were arrested and taken to the Roane County Jail.
“Upon arrival, Mr. Pruett informed the jail staff he had several oxymorphone concealed inside his pants,” the warrant said.
Greenlaw and Pruett both have Detroit addresses. Both were still in custody at the Roane County Jail Thursday morning.
Pruett’s bond was $150,000. Greenlaw was being held on a $75,000 bond.
Pruett and Greenlaw have prior criminal convictions, according to the Michigan Department of Corrections.
