Christopher Jordan Dillon

A Rickman man faces a litany of drug-related charges after Overton County Sheriff’s Department went to his home to serve warrants on Monday, Feb. 8.

According to Overton County Sheriff’s Department, deputies went to 9508 Spring Creek Road to serve two felony warrants and heard “a loud commotion” as they approached the front of the house.

At the rear of the house, deputies reportedly found Christopher Jordan Dillon “putting things in a black tote with a yellow lid. At this point, Mr. Dillon was placed under arrest for his felony warrant.

“Mr. Dillon then stated that it was marijuana in the tote, at which point it was taken for evidence.”

According to OCSD, inside the tote was eight containers with what appeared to be marijuana along with digital scales, two glass jars of “a liquid type substance believed to be THC oil”, a box of zip-lock baggies, and two small bags of clear plastic vials.

As the investigation progressed, Chezney Danae Dillon was held in custody. She reportedly gave the location of “house guns”, which were two handguns, an AK style rifle, and a shotgun. The weapons were seized as evidence.

Mr. Dillon gave verbal consent to search the residence, according to the OCSD report, and he told the deputies that he had THC vape cartridges in a drawer under the kitchen table.

“Inside the drawer was eight THC vape cartridges along with a baggie of a dirty white crystal substance that Mr. Dillon stated that it was MD-MA that one of his friends had left,” the report states.

Also, three small glass jars of a liquid substance believed to be THC oil was also reportedly found.

“Mr. Dillon stated that everything was his and that his wife Chezney had no involvement in any of it,” the report states.

Christopher Jordan Dillon, 27, was booked into Overton County Jail at 9:04 p.m. Monday, Feb. 8, on a criminal court capias/pick-up indictment and on charges of Simple Possession of a Schedule 1 Drug, Manufacture, Sale, and Delivery of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Manufacture, Sale, and Delivery of a Schedule 1 Drug.
