Deputy James Ward started his weekend tour of duty with the Sheriff’s Department by stopping and arresting a woman in a car reported stolen in Tennessee.

On Friday, March 24, the deputy said he saw a 2007 white Nissan SL2 matching the description of the stolen vehicle at the intersection of U.S. Highway 31 and State Road 56. He pulled the vehicle over and found it was being driven by Stephanie D. Rachels, 44, of Chattanooga, Tn.

Rachels was placed under arrest for auto theft and not having a valid driver license and transported to the Scott County Security Center.

Additional charges were added when it was discovered that Rachels also had in her possession a syringe, a small quantity of methamphetamine (meth) and a small glass pipe, apparently used to smoke meth. All of the items and the car were seized.

At her initial hearing in Scott Circuit Court on Monday, March 27, Rachels was advised of her rights and the charges against her by Senior Judge Nicholas South. Those include Level 6 felony auto theft, unlawful possession of a syringe, and possession of meth. Also included was Level 6 felony maintaining a common nuisance and Class C misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bail for her was set at $15,000 by corporate surety bond or $1,500 cash. Her initial trial date is June 13.

The case has been assigned to a public defender.



Woman arrested for alleged drug buy finds more trouble at Security Center PDF Print E-mail

A woman taken into custody because of her alleged involvement in a January 23 drug buy is now facing more trouble because of her reported actions at the Scott County Security Center.

Amanda Spencer “Sug” Konkle, 38, reportedly helped her apparent boyfriend, Eddie “Ed” Daniel Collins, 39, sell methamphetamine (meth) at the couple’s home at 222 Rice Street, Austin, on that date. Detective Don Campbell of the Austin Police Department helped set up the undercover purchase, which he reported was successful.

Collins was charged with Level 5 felony dealing in meth. Konkle was charged with Level 6 maintaining a common nuisance. According to the probable cause affidavit, she was present during the illegal transaction, and she told the buyer that, if the crystal substance is broken, it would become “dust.”

The pair was arrested on March 23, and booked into the Scott County Security Center. Part of that booking process is disrobing one piece of clothing at a time with a jailer present. Each piece is then checked by the jailer, and other clothing is given to the prisoner to wear while he/she is incarcerated.

When Konkle was told to disrobe by the female jailer, she took off her shirt but then turned her back on the jailer. Told to turn around and face the jailer, Konkle allegedly put her hand inside her bra and then put a small baggie inside her mouth, apparently in an attempt to swallow it.

Konkle later supposedly admitted to Detective Campbell that the baggie contained meth.

The jailer took Konkle to the floor, and Det. Campbell and Austin Patrolman John Smith entered the room to assist the jailer in restraining the woman. Told to spit out the baggie, Konkle instead kicked and yelled and then allegedly bit the jailer’s finger.

Because of those actions, new charges were prepared against Konkle. When she arrived in Scott Circuit Court the next day, she learned that the new case charged her with Level 5 and Level 6 battery, Level 6 felony possession of meth and misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.

Both cases were set for trial on June 6. Her bail on the maintaining charge is $20,000 by corporate surety bond or $2,000 cash. The new case has a bond of $50,000 by corporate bond or $5,000 cash.

A public defender has been assigned in each case.
