Two men are in custody after a multi-agency search of a home in Martin.

Authorities received an anonymous tip about possible drug activity involving 21 year old William Pinkney of Memphis and 25 year old Detwan Myers of Martin at a residence on Ivie Circle in Martin.

Members of the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department, the Martin Police, and the 27th Judicial Special Response Team served a search warrant on the home.

While watching the house, authorities saw Pinkney come out and throw a bag away in a neighbor’s trash can.

The search of the home revealed several baggies of marijuana,a set of digital scales and a large amount of empty plastic baggies. A Weakley County road sign was also found in Myer’s bedroom.

Several more bags of marijuana, pills and digital scales were found in the white trash bag that Pinkney threw out.

Both men were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of schedule two drugs with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. Myers was also charged with theft of property for the road sign.

Both suspects said they were told police were coming to search the home by another suspect, who will be named later.
