Parked truck behind By-Pass business leads to investigation

September 23, 2013

The discovery of a parked truck behind a business on Seneca’s 123 By-Pass led during the weekend to a drug investigation that Chief John Covington says was expanded to cover other areas. The police say a field test conducted on a glass pipe that fell to the ground from a brown truck showed methamphetamine positive for a measurable amount of a crystal-like substance inside the pipe. The truck was parked adjacent to an air conditioning unit in the back of a real estate office, and the police say they seized what they consider to be burglary tools found in the truck bed. According to the police, the truck and a man seated in the driver’s seat were found around 2:30 Sunday morning—not far from a traffic safety checkpoint at By-Pass 123 and Mountain View Drive. Covington says Timothy Scott Owens, 52, of Radisson Road, Seneca was arrested and charged with possession of meth and burglary tools.
