Felony charges filed against Murfreesboro man for meth


MURFREESBORO—A felony drug charge has been filed against a Murfreesboro man in Pike County Circuit Court.
Thirty-eight-year-old Ronnie D. Homan has been charged with possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine, a class C felony.
According to the affidavit of arrest, on Saturday, June 13 around 11:40 a.m. officer with the South Central Drug Task Force Tommy Stuard was mowing his front yard on Highway 27 South when he noticed a black Toyota traveling north towards Murfreesboro. The vehicle stopped in the middle of the highway and backed up on the shoulder.
Stuard observed a couple that appeared to be arguing in the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle motioned for Stuard to come to the vehicle and as he approached the passenger door, Ronnie Homan exited the vehicle.
Stuard spoke with the driver, Nicole Stinson, and she stated that she wanted Homan out of her vehicle and needed his help. Stuard asked Stinson if she knew who he was, and she said she knew he was Tommy Stuard and that he is a cop and she wanted Homan out of her vehicle.
Homan agreed to leave the vehicle, and Stinson reached into the back floorboard of the car and placed his clothing in the front passenger seat. When Homan picked up his clothing, Stuard noticed what he believed to be a meth pipe in the seat.
After further investigation a white pill bottled marked allergy tablets was found on the ground where the vehicle had been. The bottle contained three small Ziploc bags and two white tablets that were believed to be Soma. One of the bags contained what is believed to be ice methamphetamine, one was empty and one contained white residue.
Homan and Stinson were both placed under arrest and transported to the Pike County Sheriff’s Office where they provided written statements. According to the affidavit, neither individual claimed ownership of the bottle, but they both admitted to smoking meth with each other the day before. Stinson said she saw Homan with the bottle but was unsure of its contents. She identified the pills as Soma and said if it were her bottle she would’ve taken the pills already. Homan said the bottle belonged to Stinson and he knew it contained methamphetamine.
A witness at the scene provided a written statement that she saw Homan bend down and place something under the vehicle.
Homan’s bond was set at $15,000.
