Traffic stop  results in drug charge in Hawkins County

Dylan Jeffery Domalik

ROGERSVILLE — Hawkins County deputies allegedly seized marijuana packaged for resale in 14 separate baggies during a traffic stop for speeding late Saturday night.

The HCSO Narcotics Unit routinely conducts highway drug interdiction operations involving intense traffic enforcement on roadways where narcotics are believed to be transported.

During one such operation Saturday night deputies reportedly spotted a 1998 Honda speeding at the intersection of Highway 11-W and Old Highway 11-W.

A traffic stop was conducted, and deputies received consent to search from the driver.

Sheriff Ronnie Lawson stated in a press release that a back seat passenger, identified as Dylan Jeffery Domalik, 23, 578 Oak Grove Road, Rogersville, was initially found to be possessing a small amount of marijuana. 

“Further investigation and search, revealed a metal can, which contained 14 individual small baggies of marijuana that were obviously packaged for resale,” Lawson said. “Mr. Domalik was also determined to be in possession of $186 cash. The combined marijuana weight was determined to be approximately one-half ounce.”

Lawson added, “While speaking with Mr. Domalik, it was determined that he had been selling the pre-packaged marijuana, and the cash was proceeds from the illegal drug sells.” 

Deputies seized all marijuana and cash, and Domalik was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Domalik was released from the Hawkins County Jail on $5,000 bond, and is scheduled for arraignment in Sessions court on Jan. 6.
