SUBJECT: Felony drug arrest DATE: 8/26/2016 TIME: 5:15 p.m.
PREPARED BY: Officer Alex Garrison APPROVED BY: Sgt. Terry Hardin
On 8/25/2016, officers of the Johnson City Police Department arrested Dana Gallo (112 Woodsong Way, Jonesborough, TN 37653, 31 years old) and charged her with false reporting and manufacture/deliver/sell controlled substance (sched. II).
At approximately 10:00 p.m. on 8/25/2016, officers responded to a 911 call at 1201 Division St. in reference to a possible drug deal occurring in the parking lot involving a vehicle. On arrival, contact was made with Gallo, who was sitting in the back seat of the vehicle. She repeatedly gave officers false information regarding her identity and appeared extremely nervous. The driver and owner of the vehicle refused consent to search the vehicle, and a K9 unit was called to the scene, which led to an alert on both rear doors where Gallo was sitting. While searching the vehicle, a pouch containing a large amount of schedule II narcotics was located next to Gallo’s seat. Her identity was later successfully determined. The driver was arrested on outstanding warrants from Washington County Sheriff’s Office and another passenger was issued a citation for unlawful drug paraphernalia.
Gallo was arrested and transported to the Washington County Detention Center, where she was held on a $15,000 bond. Arraignment was set for 10:30 a.m. on 8/26/2016 in Washington County General Sessions Court.
