GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN)– Police in Goodlettsville make a felony drug bust after investigators were called to a motel for reports of a customer acting disorderly.

According to court documents, officers found more than 30 ecstasy pills in the customer’s backpack.

Police arrived and said Daniel Covington left the scene and returned minutes later to speak with officers.

Police quickly determined Covington had an outstanding warrant out of Sumner County.

Additionally, investigators said Covington’s car smelled like marijuana.

Covington attempted to leave the scene and was pulled over by officers a short time later along Long Hollow Pike, according to the affidavit.

A search of his backpack revealed 32-and-a-half ecstasy pills, which tested positive for methamphetamine, police said.

Covington faces felony drug charges.
