28-year-old Dakota Lee Baker and Edwin Meija-Alvarez were loitering outside Circle K Gas Station on Murfreesboro Pike while it was closed in the early morning of March 27th. Officers initially observed them at 12:44 a.m. in front of the store. Officers warned them that they were trespassing and that they should leave if they were not buying anything. Then, at 4:22 a.m., officers noticed the men were still standing in front of the gas station. An employee advised officers that the men had loitered on and off for the last few days at the location. Officers detained him, during which they found he had a glass pipe with burn marks. Further investigation led to officers locating three glass pipes with burn marks with chore boy stuffed inside, a plastic straw with residue, and a metal push rod. Officers believe that they may have been smoking crack. Baker was taken into custody for the unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and criminal trespassing.
