Monday, February 11, 2019

A Dunlap man found with meth and weapons has been sentenced to serve 68 months in federal prison.

Zachery Higgins appeared before Judge Sandy Mattice in Chattanooga.

On May 24, 2017, a Dunlap Police officer and Sequatchie County Sheriff’s detective arrested Higgins at Ashley Sanders’ residence in Dunlap.

After Higgins was arrested and removed from the residence, Ms. Sanders granted consent to search the home. A loaded Glock, Model 27, .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol, loaded Smith & Wesson, Model M&P, .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol, loaded .40 caliber magazine, and approximately 14 grams of methamphetamine packaged in three separate bags were seized from the master bedroom of the residence. That is the location where Higgins was arrested.

The Glock was reported stolen out of Dunlap.

On Oct. 20, federal agents interviewed Higgins at the Sequatchie County Sheriff’s Office. Higgins admitted he knew the Glock was stolen but denied stealing it.
