Tampering with a drug screen cost a Jamestown man his freedom last Thursday.

Aric Whitney Franklin, 31, of 750 Bea Road, Jamestown, arrived at the courthouse to submit to drug testing prior to an appearance in drug court.

LaFollette Police Officer Pam Jarrett reported that Franklin allegedly attempted to conceal a plastic device containing urine belonging to someone else. According to Jarrett’s report, the device was allegedly meant to falsify the results of a drug test.

The unauthorized container was located by Officer John Finely inside the restroom at the Campbell County courthouse. 

Franklin was arrested and charged with drug test falsification.
