Check Leads Deputies To Meth Find
A minor offense led to a major offense when a man
allegedly attempted to pass a forged check at a Livingston department
According to reports, Danyne S. Breast entered Overton
Department Store on Thursday, May 17 and allegedly attempted to
pass a forged check to Deputy Greg Etheredge, who helps operate
the store. Etheredge asked Breast about the check and he allegedly
admitted the check was not his. Dep. Etheredge then advised Breast
to come with him.
Breast reportedly pushed Dep. Etheredge back and fled
on foot. With the help of Brad McCormick, Breast was apprehended
a few blocks away. Dep. Etheredge then transported him to Overton
When he was put into the jail, Breast allegedly attempted
to conceal Xanax pills. During an interview conducted at the jail
by Dep. Etheredge, Dep. Heather Howell, and Chief Deputy Craig Story,
Breast allegedly gave false information about a white Ford Thunderbird,
with Warren County plates, he had been driving, which was parked
on the Livingston square in front of Overton Department Store.
Deputies went to check out the car and allegedly saw
what they believed to be a meth pipe in the floorboard. Dep. Johnny
Arney and K-9 Rudy were called to the scene. K-9 Rudy reportedly
indicated the vehicle had drugs inside.
Inside the car and in its trunk, deputies allegedly
found items necessary for a meth lab. Finished methamphetamine and
a large bag of marijuana seeds, along with scales, baggies, pipes,
and a dropper, were also allegedly found in the car.
Breast is incarcerated in Overton County Jail under
a $95,000 bond.
