 Being jailed in another county didn’t stop Clyde Lynnie Hawkins from racking up charges in Campbell County.

According to Det. John Long of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department, he received an anonymous tip regarding marijuana being grown on the property at 360 Little Cove Creek Road.

“We went to the address to conduct a knock and talk and observed the marijuana growing in plain sight on the property,” Long explained.

During an interview at the Anderson County jail, Long said Hawkins, 37, of 360 Little Cove Creek Road, confessed to growing marijuana at his home.

As a result of his confession Hawkins was charged with cultivating marijuana.

In addition to these charges, Hawkins was arrested by officers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol on Sept. 17 for driving on a revoked license.
