On July 29, 2022, while patrolling the area of Townsend Street and Whitlock Street, in a marked Glynn County Police patrol vehicle, I observed a black Honda Accord [REDACTED BY AGENCY] traveling East on Townsend Street with its driver’s window rolled down.
I looked at the driver and observed she was not wearing her seatbelt. I then turned my vehicle around to initiate a traffic stop. The Accord turned onto Whitlock Street. I activated my emergency lights and the vehicle came to a stop at the intersection with Southern Drive.
I approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, now identified as Tiffany Suggs. I informed Suggs the reason for the stop. I asked her if she had a reason for not wearing her seatbelt. Suggs told me because she was in a hurry to get to her mother’s house to get her registration ticket. She was extremely nervous during my interaction with her.
When I asked her why she was nervous, she said it was because her mother was going to be upset that she hasn’t gotten the tag on the car yet. After obtaining her driver’s license, I walked back to my patrol vehicle and requested an additional unit and/or a K-9 Unit.
While waiting for the K-9 unit to arrive, Officer Bill Duggan arrived to assist. Officer Duggan utilized his tint meter on the left rear window and informed me the tint was at 9%. I then began writing citations for the window tint and the seat belt.
Officer Antonio Hurt then arrived on scene with K-9 Betty. Officer Hurst deployed K-9 Betty and he received a positive alert on the vehicle. After the positive alert, Inv. Kody Begnaud and I began searching the car for any contraband. During this search, Inv. Begnaud located an Acid cigar tin can in the passenger door. Timothy Kite was sitting in the front passenger seat during the stop. Inside this container was brillo and a glass pipe was located. When Inv. Begnaud shook the item, a white rock substance came out of the Brillo. Officer Hurst then field tested this for cocaine and it tested positive.
While searching the driver’s side front and rear of the car, I located multiple smoking pipes and brillo pads. I asked both Suggs and Kite who the narcotics belonged to. They both told me it wasn’t theirs and that it must have been someone who rode in the car some other time. I told Kite it was found next to him in the door and that the car belongs to Suggs so they both can be charged for possession. Kite then claimed ownership of the drugs.
I then placed Kite under arrest for possession of a schedule II narcotic. He was placed in double locked handcuffs behind his back. These cuffs were checked for tightness. He was searched and then placed in the rear seat of my patrol vehicle which was searched prior to my shift.
After placing him in the car, I decided to place Suggs under arrest for possession of drug related object. She was placed in double locked handcuffs behind her back which were also checked for tightness. She was then placed in the rear seat of my patrol vehicle. Both Kite and Suggs were secured with a seatbelt and then transported to the Glynn County Detention Center.
Kite was booked under one count of possession of a schedule II controlled substance. Suggs was booked and cited for window tint violation, seatbelt violation and possession of drug related objects. This incident was captured on my Axon body camera and it has been uploaded into evidence.com under this case.
