Drug bust at car wash
Kenneth Acorn, 23 was arrested for possession of controlled substance in a drug free zone and warrants on Tuesday. The Sweetwater Police Department received a complaint about loud music at the car wash around 12:30 p.m. Upon arrival, police arrested Acorn, as he had an outstanding warrant, and in the process, retrieved suspected crack cocaine, marijuana and money from Acorn’s vehicle. Shown above are members of the Sweetwater Police Department SGT Pat Lenoir and LT Randy Hanes searching Acorn’s vehicle at the Lamar Street car wash. The car wash is across the street from Sweetwater Middle School. Possession in a drug free zone raises the minimum sentence by five years.
