33-year-old Jeremy Lincoln Anderson was sitting in the front passenger seat of a stolen, white 2005 Chevy Colorado at the Parliament Place Apartments on Glastonbury Road early on March 20th. Officers observed that the Chevrolet had a temporary white tag covering a blue plate, which they knew concealed the vehicle’s registration; they approached it, located Anderson, and took photos of the VIN through the windshield. Officers noticed a black crossbody-style bag next to him and asked if there were any guns, to which he said there wasn’t. Officers then ran the VIN and discovered that the Chevy was reported stolen by Dustin Perrigo on March 13th in Davidson County. When they reapproached the vehicle, Anderson was outside, leaning into the passenger window. Officers told Anderson to come to the truck’s rear and sit on the tailgate. Officers then searched the Chevy and located a polymer 80 semi-automatic handgun under the front passenger seat. The gun had no serial number, was assembled with various parts, and was loaded with one round in the chamber with an additional 28 rounds in an extended magazine. Officers learned Anderson had previously been convicted of robbery, multiple counts of aggravated assault, and drug possession in Weakley County, TN, as well as two schedule VI drug charges in Knox County. Anderson was detained and searched, where officers found a straw with a folded piece of paper with residue. Anderson was then Mirandized, under Miranda, Anderson told officers that the gun was not his and that he had been picked up in the Chevy. Anderson added that he did not know the driver’s name but had “seen him around.” Anderson added that he did not call him for the ride and did not know that the car was stolen or that the gun was in there. Officers lifted prints from the rearview mirror and turned them in. They discovered additional straws in a black bag in the pickup truck, as well as a plastic bag with .2 grams of cocaine in his pants pocket. Anderson was taken into custody for joyriding, simple possession, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and being a felon in possession of a handgun.
