According to information provided by the Brazil Police Department, at approximately 11:19 p.m., Friday, Officer Elliott Mullinix was traveling north on Alabama Street when he observed a blue Cadillac with a white top also traveling north on the street.
Prior to seeing the vehicle, Mullinix stated he had received information about the vehicle described and that a Clay County resident wanted on two separate probation violation warrants had been driving the vehicle.
At this time, Mullinix said he noticed four people were occupying the vehicle.
After the vehicle came to a stop, Mullinix stated he pulled into the station and exited his patrol car as three individuals got out of the vehicle.
According to information provided, Mullinix asked the three individuals for identification. Two of the individuals asked if they could go into the station as Mullinix approached a male sitting in the front passenger seat.
Mullinix stated he asked the male passenger his name. The male allegedly provided a name and said he did not have any identification on him.
Eventually, another of the occupants stated the person in the vehicle was Jack D. Barnett Jr., 33, Clay County, who was wanted on two separate warrants for probation violations.
Barnett was arrested for the probation violations (Battery with Bodily Injury and Dealing in Methamphetamine) as well as being preliminarily charged with False Reporting.
While speaking with one of the occupants of the vehicle, Mullinix stated he smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle.
With assistance from Officer Beau McKinney and Sgt. Todd Stemm, Mullinix continued the investigation by searching the vehicle.
Through the search, Mullinix allegedly discovered a glass marijuana smoking pipe in the purse of Courtney Day, 28, Clay County.
The pipe, according to Mullinix, had a leafy green substance in the end of it and was field tested positive for marijuana.
Day was arrested and preliminarily charged with Possession of Marijuana Under 30 Grams in addition to Possession of Paraphernalia.
However, another occupant of the vehicle, Dustin J. Alexander, 25, Clay County, then allegedly stated the glass pipe was his. Alexander was then placed under arrest and also preliminarily charged with Possession of Paraphernalia and Possession of Marijuana Under 30 Grams.
According to information provided by the police department, Officer McKinney also located a small plastic cigarette wrapper with a small amount of a green leafy substance in it.
All three were transported to the Clay County Justice Center. While at the justice center, Clay County Sheriff's Department Jail Officer Sam Switzer located a glass smoking pipe stained with a burnt, white residue inside of Alexander's left pocket.
Switzer gave the pipe to Mullinix, who asked Stemm if they had any methamphetamine field test kits when Alexander allegedly said, "it's going to test positive."
Alexander was then preliminarily charged with Possession of methamphetamine.
The other glass pipe field tested positive for methamphetamine.
According to staff at the justice center, as of Sunday, both Alexander and Day had bonded out of the justice center, while Barnett was still incarcerated.
