A suspicious vehicle was reported at the Mapco at 1516 Gallatin Pike South on August 27th. Once Metro Police responded, they located a black Chevrolet Impala parked incorrectly, taking up two parking spaced. Inside the car, they located 20-year-old Deandre M. Conway asleep in the driver’s seat. While the vehicle was ‘on’, it was later determined it was not drivable due to par of the key being broken into the ignition.

Once he did, officers report an obvious odor of marijuana rolling from inside the vehicle.

Deandre Conway was charged with drug possession, public intoxication, and possession of a handgun while under the influence. He is free on a $5,500 bond.
