'Bath Salts' Arrests Spike Tuesday

The synthetic drug known as "bath salts" is making its mark in Greene County.

At least eight people were charged with possession of bath salts Tuesday in two separate incidents, according to sheriff's deputies.

Five people were charged with possession of a Schedule I drug and possession of drug paraphernalia after sheriff's deputies went to a house at 110 Woodlyn St. looking for a woman with active arrest warrants.

After receiving consent to search the house, two plastic bags containing "a white crystal substance" were found.

"I was told it was bath salts," Deputy Chuck Humphreys said in a report.

The drugs were found in a bedroom that the suspects "had access to and had been in prior to my arrival," the report said.

Also found in rooms throughout the house were five syringes "used for shooting up drugs," four pipes "used for smoking drugs" and straws "used for snorting drugs," the report said.

Charged with possession of bath salts and possession of drug paraphernalia were Tonya Michelle Morgan, 35, of the Woodlyn Street address; Michael A. Morgan, 42, of the Woodlyn Street address; Amanda Jane Fillers, 34, of 262 Fairfield Drive; Jeffrey Wayne Fillers, 36, of 114 Skyview Drive; and Tiffany Renee Norton, 26, of 1971 Pisgah Road.

All five defendants have General Sessions Court appearances scheduled for today.


A traffic stop Tuesday led to charges of possession of a Schedule I drug against two women and a man, Deputy Robert Mathes said in a report.

Driver Pamela Gillin, 39, of 180 Iron Bridge Road, was pulled over for driving 40 mph in a 30 mph speed zone, the report said.

After receiving permission to search the car, deputies found "a small green container" that held a "white powder/crystal substance" believed to be bath salts, the report said.

Two passengers were also charged with possession. They are John Cody Johnson, 22, of Hidden Oaks Apartments; and Melinda Babb, 19, of 790 Whitehouse Road.

Gillin was also issued a speeding citation.

Bond for Gillin, Johnson and Babb was set at $1,000 each. They are scheduled to appear today in General Sessions Court.
