McKenzie Police Reports


Unlawful Weapon Possession — Sgt. Kyle Beauchamp and two other officers responded to a Forrest Circle address Tuesday, December 21, due to a caller stating he had been threatened with brass knuckles by Robert Woodard, 65, of McKenzie. According to Beauchamp’s report, officers had dealt with Woodard earlier in the day and he had prior knowledge that Woodard did possess brass knuckles.

On this second call, Beauchamp found Woodard walking in the street and asked him if he was still in possession of the brass knuckles. After requesting dispatch to run a criminal history on Woodard, it was discovered he was a convicted felon. The original complainant refused to cooperate but Woodard was arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and transported to Carroll County Jail.

Multiple Charges — A McKenzie man was charged on multiple charges following a traffic stop on Tuesday evening, January 4. Officer Tanner Jackson observed a pickup truck making maneuvers on South Main Street and ran the tag number and found it did not belong to the vehicle it was on. Jackson initiated a traffic stop on Cherrywood Road.

The driver, Shawn Roy, 50, of McKenzie, informed Officer Jackson that his drivers license was suspended and the vehicle did not have insurance. A warrant check revealed that Roy had warrants for Failure To Appear and Violation of Probation in Weakley County.

A consented search was done on the vehicle during which a silver glasses case was found containing a pink glass pipe with residue, a cut plastic straw, and three small baggies containing a white powder substance believed to be Methamphetamine. A field test was later done confirming the substance to be Methamphetamine.
