From WCYB-TV, Bristol:
A peaceful campground in East Tennessee suddenly became full of police cars and flashing lights July 5. A tip from someone in the community had the narcotics unit on alert and the campground under surveillance.
"We had the parking lot under surveillance and saw this vehicle that we had a complaint on,” Hawkins County Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said. “We conducted a traffic stop and it resulted in them being arrested and drugs being found."
According the sheriff's report, 48-year-old Roger Wilburn admitted he had illegal drugs in his SUV. He is facing two separate charges of possession of Schedule II narcotics and one count of possession of Schedule IV narcotics.
The report also says his wife Carolyn Wilburn was given a citation for simple possession of marijuana and later released.
“They keep dipping in the well and they are soon going to come up dry in Hawkins County," Lawson added.
As for the community tip that lead to the bust, Sheriff Lawson says the public is one of his department's best-kept secrets. "The community has confidence in us and they call daily on drug activity. We never tell where our sources come from, and it helps a lot. There are a lot of eyes and ears out there, which makes the job a lot easier. We couldn't do it without them," the sheriff said.
