Press Release-Dana Gallo

Gallo arrest

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.

On Thursday, August 25th, 2016 at approx. 0330am, Officers of the Johnson City Police Dept. arrested Khalid H Al Sharyah, age 31, of 606 Swadley Rd, Johnson City, TN for the charges of Driving Under the Influence, Driving Left of Center, Running a Red Light, Identity Theft, and No Driver’s License.  While on patrol in the area of W State of Franklin Road and Sevier St, Officers observed the defendant cross the double yellow line and run a red light while driving.  Through those observations and poor performance on standardized field sobriety tests after a traffic stop, it was concluded that the defendant was heavily intoxicated and driving under the influence.  During the arrest process, the defendant provided an ID card that in fact belonged to his brother, thus misidentifying himself and using his brother’s identity.  Mr. Al Sharyah is being held at the Washington County Detention Center on a $6,000 bond charged with the above charges and is awaiting a hearing in Sessions court on 08/26/16 at 10:30am.

On Thursday, August 25, 2016 Mark A Moody, 57, 124 Warrior Falls Dr, Kingsport, TN was arrested by the Johnson City Police Department on a warrant charging him with attempted burglary, burglary, aggravated assault (2 counts) and vandalism over $500. The arrest stems from an incident which occurred at a business in north Johnson City.

 

The owner of the business called 911 and the incident was initially believed to be a motor vehicle accident. The investigation revealed that Moody had been to the business earlier in the night and that he threw a brick at the glass door and left the scene. A relative of the business owner was watching the business when Moody returned a second time in the same vehicle. Moody apparently then used a stone to bust out a window and the relative then drove his vehicle to the property. Moody had entered his vehicle in an effort to leave, at which time the relative tried to use his vehicle to block him in. According to a witness, Moody then intentionally rammed the relative’s vehicle twice before fleeing scene. He was stopped on Hwy 36 by the W.C.S.O. and placed in custody on suspicion of DUI.

 

A warrant was obtained on Moody charging him with the above mentioned offenses and served on him at the Washington County Detention Center where he is being held in lieu of a $60,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on August 26, 2016 at 10:30am.
