The bond for a 56-year-old Sparta man has been set at $100,000 after an arrest on multiple drug charges and evading arrest.
On April 23, 2019, at approximately 1:05 p.m., Deputy Brandon Young, of White County Sheriff Department, was on Cashdollar Cove Rd., on routine patrol, when he reportedly observed a red truck in which the driver was not wearing a seat belt.
According to the arrest warrant, Young conducted a traffic stop and came in contact with the driver, Michael D. Scoglione, 56. Young stated Scoglione was “acting nervous.” Young then asked the subject if he had anything illegal in the truck to which Scoglione reportedly stated “no.”
Scoglione gave Young permission to search the vehicle. According to the arrest warrant, a plastic baggie that contained a white crystal substance believed to be meth (58.6 grams) was found in a white cup behind the driver’s seat.
Young advised Scoglione he was under arrest at which time he reportedly “took off running.” He was apprehended and then reportedly gave permission for a search of his residence. According to the arrest warrant, upon searching the residence, officers found a brown wood box containing three meth pipes, rolling papers, digital scales, and a small amount of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, and a small baggie containing a crystal-like substance believed to be meth (3.5 grams).
According to records from White County Jail, Scoglione was charged with possession/sale/delivery/manufacturing schedule II meth, simple possession schedule VI, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while in possession of meth, and evading arrest on foot.
Scoglione’s bond was set at $100,000. His court date was set for April 30, 2019.
