Madisonville Police arrested two different people outside of two popular fast food restaurants on June 15-16.

Patrolman Jesse Moses said he went to Captain D’s just after 7 p.m. on a call of a man and woman possibly on narcotics falling asleep at a table.

Moses said when he arrived, he found the man walking through the parking lot and stopped him, telling him why he was there.

The man said they had been working all day and were just tired.

Moses said he then talked to the woman who said the same thing, that she was tired and was falling asleep.

Moses identified the woman as Tammy Nicole Fuller and asked her and the man if there was anything illegal in their car. They both said no.

He asked Fuller if she had anything illegal in her purse. She said no. He then asked if he could search their car and they said yes.

He also asked to search Fuller’s purse and she said yes to that also.

The car didn’t turn up anything, but Moses said in Fuller’s purse he found a small tan and black bag and, in that bag, was several syringes, tourniquet bands, a spoon and one loaded syringe. The content of the syringe tested positive as Heroin.

Fuller, 33, Madisonville, was charged with possession of Heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia. The next morning, around 8 a.m., Patrolman Adam Russell said he was told by a state trooper he had a man possibly under the influence pulled over at KFC in a black truck.

Russell said he went to the restaurant and found the truck to be the only vehicle in the parking lot and there was a man inside.

Russell said he parked and did a casual walk up on the man and found him to be very nervous and asked if he had any kind of identification.

The man said no, so Russell asked him if he could give his name, date of birth and social security number. The man, freely gave these and Russell identified him as Shawn Weimorts.

Russell said he asked Weimorts if he could search the truck and Weimorts said he could.

In the search, Russell said a baggie with a crystal like substance in it behind the driver’s seat.

Russell said he read Weimorts his rights and Weimorts admitted he’d used meth about three days earlier. The trooper, also on the scene, said he had spotted Weimorts apparently driving under the influence, though he told the trooper it’d been four days since he’d used meth. Weimorts also refused to do any blood tests.

Weimorts, 35, Ball Play Road, Madisonville, was charged with possession of meth, DUI, implied consent violation and several traffic violations.
