Two Arrested on Drug Charges in Pulaski County

Two people were arrested on drug charges after a traffic stop by the West Central High School on Monday.

A deputy with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department asked the driver, Jaime Walker, if he could search the vehicle and she gave the officer permission to do so. When the officer approached the passenger side of the vehicle, he reportedly witnessed passenger, Tammy Grigsby, pass a small plastic bag between the seats to Tony Grigsby, Jr. In his search of the vehicle, the officer saw a prescription pill bottle in Tammy Grigsby’s purse with another individual’s name on it and a small plastic bag with prescription pills and marijuana in it.

Both Tammy and Tony Grigsby, Jr. allegedly stated that they were going to sell the narcotics and later recanted their statements. They were arrested on preliminary charges of Dealing in a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Marijuana. The case will be forwarded to the Pulaski County Prosecutor for further review.
