Elizabethton man hit with drug charges twice in one day

THAD J. BUCKLES

ELIZABETHTON — Less than 24 hours after an Elizabethton man received a summons for drug charges, he was arrested on additional drug charges — by the same officers.

On Monday night, Elizabethon Police Department Officers James Sexton and Jordan Ensor arrested Thad J. Buckles, 30, 607 Beech St., after they said they found Buckles with marijuana, prescription pills and equipment used to weigh and sell them.

The arrest marked the second interaction between Sexton, Ensor and Buckles that took place on Monday. Earlier that day, Sexton and Ensor responded to a shoplifting call at Wal-Mart Supercenter, 1001 Overmountain Drive, and said store personnel told them they saw a man hiding merchandise on his person.
