Detective Sherman Hayes said they found Williams in the residence with a clear plastic bag containing nine Ecstasy pills. In his bedroom was a plastic bag with another Ecstasy pill, authorities said.
The street value of all 10 pills is $250.
He was transported to the Public Safety Building, where he allegedly told authorities he was previously in possession of a stolen 2014 Dodge Ram pickup truck.
The $24,000 vehicle was reported stolen on Nov. 15 and found at Eagles Trace Apartments ten days later, Hayes testified. There was moderate damage to the vehicle.
“He admitted that he had been in possession of the truck, but denied stealing the vehicle,” Hayes told the court.
