Tennessee deputies bust home where adult says kids did drugs

February 16, 2018

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A search of a home in Tennessee turned up pills, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and authorities say an adult owned up to letting kids there do drugs.

Court records show 41-year-old Pepsi Kolar and 38-year-old Scott Wilson were arrested Wednesday after Kolar told Knox County sheriff’s deputies they knowingly allowed juveniles to “partake in the use of illegal substances.”

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports an arrest warrant says deputies found seven pills believed to be oxycodone and 3 grams of suspected marijuana in Wilson’s car. Deputies found assorted paraphernalia in the home, including in a juvenile’s bedroom, and drug-related text messages on Wilson’s phone.

Kolar and Wilson are charged with maintaining a dwelling for drug use, contributing to the delinquency of a child and possession of unlawful drug paraphernalia.
