A Cookeville man faces multiple drug-related charges following a traffic stop Saturday, July 8.

Sgt. Junior Fields of the Smith County Sheriff’s Office stopped a blue Chevy Cobalt after observing the vehicle not having an illuminated license plate.

After running the driver Rodney Insco’s (26, Cookeville) license plate through dispatch, it was found that his insurance was not confirmed.

According to the arrest warrant, Insco stated he had hypodermic syringes inside his car which he used to “shoot up” suboxone.

A search of Insco’s vehicle revealed a metal box containing multiple spoons and hypodermic syringes, as well as a small baggie of crystal methamphetamine (Schedule II).

Insco was placed under arrest and transported to the Smith County Jail Facility for booking.

He is charged with Possession of Schedule II and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia with Intent to Use.
