Lobelville man arrested with drugs, weapons and more than $10K cash
Local authorities arrested a Lobelville resident late Tuesday after he was found to be in possession of drugs, a firearm, and more than $10,000 in cash.
Daniel Paul Ranger, age 31, was arrested on multiple charges a little after 10:30 p.m. after local authorities received a BOLO regarding his vehicle. Reports filed through the Lawrenceburg Police Department show that police officers were instructed to watch for a black Jeep with a light bar. Concerned motorists had reported that the driver was traveling southbound on Highway 43 while in the northbound lanes.
An officer on patrol first sighted Ranger in the vicinity of Sonic on North Locust Avenue. After seeing that the driver failed to maintain a lane of travel, he initiated a traffic stop. Ranger told the officer that he was traveling from his home to his sister’s residence in Leoma.
During the investigation both Ranger and his vehicle were searched. Officers report that he was in possession of a 9mm handgun, a bullet-proof vest, three cell phones, a small bag containing 5.5 grams of a clear crystal substance, and “several wads of $100 and $50 bills.” Altogether, officers report that Ranger was traveling with $10,241.
When officers questioned Ranger about the items, he allegedly told them that he “didn’t know the cash was in his pocket” or to whom it belonged. He also claimed that he had no knowledge of the crystal substance that was seized.
Ranger consented to a blood alcohol test. He was transported to Southern Tennessee Regional Health Systems, then to the Lawrence County Detention Center.
Ranger was booked under charges of illegal possession of a firearm, driving under the influence of an intoxicant, possession of a firearm while under the influence of an intoxicant, and possession of Schedule II narcotics for the purpose of resale. Bond was set at $22,000.
Ranger has been scheduled an initial appearance in Lawrence County General Sessions Court on April 6, 2017.
