Published 7:23 pm Tuesday, August 1, 2017
Early Friday morning just after 1a.m., Bainbridge Public Safety Officer Jayson Myers and Officer Tarow Barney were traveling on Clay Street and noticed a vehicle without any brake lights.
Myers stopped the vehicle, driven by Wanda Moore, and notified her of her non-working brake lights. A front seat passenger, Terrence Price, became very nervous while Myers was speaking with Moore. Myers recognized Price from previous incidents, and asked if they had anything illegal on their person or in the vehicle. Both stated that they didn’t, and agreed to let Myers search the vehicle.

A third passenger, Kiersten Williams, was seated in the back of the vehicle and was asked to step out during the search. Moore’s purse was searched and Myers found a marijuana grinder and a “Kiddy Dough” container with a small amount of marijuana inside. The vehicle was searched and Myers retrieved multiple baggies containing cocaine hidden inside a small compartment used for storing sunglasses.
Price stated that whatever was in the vehicle was his. Moore was found in possession of crack cocaine, and Williams admitted to having a small amount of marijuana hidden on her person. Wanda Moore, Terrence Price, and Kiersten Williams were transported to Bainbridge Public Safety for booking, and the vehicle was towed.
