BULLS GAP, TN (WJHL) -

An expired tag violation led to the discovery of methamphetamine and other drugs in a car in Hawkins County Sunday evening.

Three people in that car were charged with various drug offenses, and one of them tried to run, according to incident reports.

A Hawkins County deputy stopped a vehicle around 6 p.m. Sunday at the Dollar General Store in Bulls Gap and when the car window was lowered, the deputy immediately smelled marijuana.

The people in the car, brothers Sage Cash, 22, and James Cash, 25, both of Bulls Gap; and Amanda Norton, 23, of Greeneville, got out and Sage Cash ran after the deputy learned his driver’s license was revoked.

He was caught after a short chase.

A search of the vehicle revealed four small bags with what was believed to be methamphetamine weighing 1.4 grams. Also, 10.5 grams of marijuana were found. Some pills were also in the vehicle.

The Cash brothers and Norton were all charged with drug possession offenses.

Norton and Sage Cash were charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.

Sage Cash was charged additionally with driving on a revoked license, escape and violation of registration.
