Oneida, TN (2018-01-09) A Lancing man wanted on an outstanding warrant in Morgan County has been booked locally on drug and weapons charges.
Dominic J. Susak, Jr., 39, of Lancing was booked into the Scott County Jail last week, after authorities say they found him in possession of a prohibited weapon and drug paraphernalia in the parking lot of a local retail store. According to an arrest warrant written by Officer David L. Stephens of the Oneida Police Department, authorities were called to the local Tractor Supply store because two male customers in the store had allegedly taken merchandise from the store in the past.
After approaching the subjects, authorities learned that Susak had an outstanding warrant out of Morgan County for failure to appear. Authorities say that when they detained Susak, he had a makeshift drug injection kit containing two syringes, a small plastic bag with white powder residue on it, and a shoestring tourniquet. Susak also reportedly told authorities he had a rifle in his vehicle in the parking lot. Susak’s girlfriend, identified as Tonya Baird, told authorities Susak had been hunting with the rifle, and had been showing her how to hunt.
Since Susak had a prior felony drug conviction, authorities say he was prohibited from owning a weapon.
In addition to the charge out of Morgan County, Susak was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm (by a convicted felon), and possession of drug paraphernalia.
