Oneida, TN (2018-01-09) An Oneida man is facing drug charges after authorities say he possessed a medication prescribed to treat ADHD.
Larry M. Brewster, 45, of Oneida was booked into the Scott County Jail last week after authorities searched his room at a local motel and found drugs and drug paraphernalia. According to an arrest warrant penned by K-9 Officer Toby Jeffers of the Oneida Police Department, Brewster was turned in by motel management.
When questioned by officers, Brewster denied having anything illegal in his room; however, a search of the premises allegedly turned up drug paraphernalia in the bathroom. During a subsequent search of Brewster, authorities say they found a pill bottle in his pocket containing Hyrdrocodone and Vyvanse, a medicine used in the treatment of ADHD. Brewster reportedly denied ownership of the Hyrdocodone, saying a friend had left them in his room. He reportedly admitted to possessing the Vyvanse, but told officers he thought it was Adipex, a weight loss drug.
Brewster was charged with two counts of the possession of schedule II controlled substance (Hydrocodone/Vyvanse), and possession of drug paraphernalia.
