Bond was set at $26,500 and Vaughn is to appear in General Sessions Court on Dec. 10.

Deputies responded to a community report of suspicious activity at the Vaughn residence on Nov. 14 and found the suspect sitting on a couch in the living room.

Once inside the residence, Vaughn reportedly gave Deputy Dustin Jackson and Cpl. Kevin Davis permission to search the mobile home.

In a bedroom, deputies recovered a used syringe and several unused syringes. They also found a small amount of meth in the bedroom. In a dresser was found two plastic bags containing 1.8 ounces of marijuana in each bag, digital pocket scale and box of plastic bags.

A search warrant was obtained to secure and preserve records for Vaughn's cell phone, with all evidence seized sent to the TBI crime lab for analysis.
