36-year-old Edwin Meija-Alvarez and Dakota Lee Baker were loitering outside Circle K Gas Station on Murfreesboro Pike while it was closed in the early hours of March 27th. Officers observed this and advised them they could only be on the property if they were conducting legal business repeatedly. Then, officers detained Alvarez because he had been warned numerous times throughout the weekend and determined his behavior would continue. Officers searched Alvarez and located a metal pipe with burnt residue, consistent with being used as a crack pipe.  Meija-Alvarez was taken into custody for criminal trespassing and the unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
