OTS man turns misdemeanor stop into felony episode

George Edward Reed III, 33, of the 3811 block of Greenbrook Street in Oak Trail Shores, was pulled over by a Sheriff’s Office deputy for reckless driving Tuesday, Lieutenant Johnny Rose said. The deputy found less than 2 ounces of marijuana, which would bring a Class B misdemeanor charge. But Reed tried to hide some of the marijuana, according to Rose, which qualifies as a third-degree felony count of tampering with physical evidence.
