From staff reports
A Franklin man is facing a felony drug charge and several related misdemeanor charges.
A criminal complaint filed by Franklin city police says Dillon James Monks, 24, was charged after an incident at about 11:20 a.m. Tuesday at the Franklin Family Dollar.
Police said they responded to the Grant Street location for a suspected retail theft. The manager told the officers that Monks’ backpack appeared to be more full than it was when he arrived at the store, police said.
While there was no evidence of a retail theft, Monks was arrested for the paraphernalia, and police said additional drug paraphernalia was found on his person.
Monks was charged with one felony count of manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance, one misdemeanor count of use-possession of drug paraphernalia and two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Central Court.
