STEWART COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Buchanan couple faces multiple drug charges after they were arrested in the parking lot of a Stewart County courthouse earlier this week.
On Wednesday, August 31, a deputy with the Stewart County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to suspicious activity coming from a vehicle that was parked in the rear parking lot of the courthouse.
According to the sheriff’s office, while the deputy was speaking with the male driver and female passenger, he became suspicious and called for a K-9 unit.
