On Friday, drug detecting canines from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, Lebanon Police Department and the 18th Judicial Task Force conducted a random search at each of the four high schools in Wilson County. An eighteen year old student from Mt. Juliet High School, Jacob J. Kachinko, was arrested after officers discovered approximately a quarter pound of Schedule VI (Marijuana) in the trunk of his vehicle. Mr. Kachinko was transported to the Wilson County Jail where he later posted a $2,000.00 Bond for Possession with Intent for Resale. There were also three other juveniles that were cited through Juvenile Court throughout the county on drug related charges.
“This was a joint effort, that we conduct periodically, to help keep drugs out of our school systems. Schools are designed to be a learning environment for students, not for drug use and trafficking. Canines alerted on several vehicles throughout the county and a large amount of Schedule VI was located during those searches,” stated Sheriff Robert Bryan. “We will continue to be vigilant at all of our schools in keeping them a drug-free zone. We appreciate the working relationships we have with both of our school systems and will work daily on providing all students and staff with a safe environment.”
