Drug suspect racks up second charge while on bond

CROSSVILLE — A man under $23,500 bond as a result of a drug related arrest Nov. 4 was arrested while out on bond three days later on new drug charges by a different police agency, according to arrest reports.

Matthew Raymond Alcorn, 23, 590 Chestnut Hill Rd., was arrested Nov. 4 on charges of manufacture, delivery or sell of methamphetamine, simple possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of a weapon and driving on a suspended license, according to Cumberland County Sheriff's Deputy Zach Gilpin's report.

Also taken into custody was a Matthew Taylor.

Gilpin wrote in his report that he spotted Alcorn driving a Mitsubishi car on Hwy. 127 around 3:50 p.m. and made a traffic stop at an apartment complex on Green Meadows Lane.

A safety search of the suspect resulted in the recovery of what the report described as a small bag of marijuana. This led to the recovery of two .9 mm handguns from underneath the car seats, a container with two small bags of substance identified by police as methamphetamine, bags, digital scales and a glass pipe.

Alcorn was charged, jailed and later released under the $23,500 bond.

Three days later, Crossville Police Ptl. Tim Vandever observed a speeding 1998 Ford Escort traveling from N. Main St. onto Green Meadows Lane where he conducted a traffic stop. The driver this time was identified as Jasen Kirby, 32, 3163 Brewer Rd. His passenger was Alcorn.

Because of the suspicious way the two men were acting, Vandever decided to further investigate the incident, with assistance from Ptl. Dustin Lester. Lester's drug dog alerted to the presence of drugs in the vehicle and a search yielded a bag of marijuana, digital scales, a .38 revolver and a computer.

A search of Alcorn at the jail yielded several small bags of a substance described as methamphetamine and six Viagra pills for which there was no prescription.

Alcorn was charged with sale, manufacture or delivery of meth; sale, manufacture or delivery of marijuana; unlawful carrying of a weapon with intent to go armed; possession of a schedule II drug (fentanyl); possession of a legend drug (Viagara); possession of drug paraphernalia; and introducing contraband into a penal institution.

Kirby was charged with sale, manufacture or delivery of meth; sale, manufacture or delivery of marijuana; possession of a schedule II(fentanyl); possession of a legend drug (Viagara); unlawful possession of a weapon for the purpose of going armed; possession of drug paraphernalia; and driving on a suspended license.
