A domestic violence call led officers to find a bag of a green leafy substance and pipe last week.

Jellico Police Officer Wayne Conrad reported to the Jellico residence on Sunset Trail in response to a domestic violence call.

Christopher D. Lamb, 20, was involved in an altercation with a female and had made threats to her, according to the arrest report.

Lamb reportedly went outside and kicked the victim’s vehicle in the driveway.

“Upon my arrival, the victim stated that the defendant was threatening and may be on drugs,” said Conrad.

The owner of the home gave officers consent to search and a pipe with marijuana in it and a bag of green leafy substance and seeds were found in the defendant’s room.

Lamb was charged with domestic violence by assault, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
