The following news release has been issued by Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
On February 19, 2014, Cherokee County Patrol Officer Tony Dockery and Sgt. Ryan Cunningham arrested two people on a variety of narcotics offenses. The arrests came about after a concerned citizen reported suspicious activity. Nathaniel Ivan Reeves, age 29, no permanent address, and Amy Leigh Phillips, age 29, also with no permanent address, were arrested.
Deputy Dockery encountered the two sitting on the side of the road and during a field interview with the two, believed that one or both subjects were under the influence of narcotics. With the assistance of Sgt. Cunningham, a search of the two were conducted and a vial containing methamphetamine was found in Reeves’ pocket and a glass meth smoking pipe was also found. A “loaded” (meaning it was filled with a substance later determined to be methamphetamine) syringe was found on the passenger side of the vehicle. After arresting Reeves and Phillips, upon booking into the detention center, an additional amount of methamphetamine was located in his underwear.
Reeves was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, Simple Possession of Schedule II controlled substance (morphine sulfate and oxycodone), Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of Methamphetamine in a Jail Premise, and Maintaining a Vehicle to Possess and Transport Methamphetamine. Reeves’ bond was set at $30,000.00 by Magistrate Cliff Owl.
